During the recent orienta- 
tion of incoming freshmen stu- 
dents an important observa- 
tion was made by the students 
and faculty members involved 
with the two day program. The 
officers of the Student Gov- 
ernment functioned smoothly 
as they went about doing their 
assigned tasks during the 
orientation. A month of work 
and coordination culminated 
in an interesting, informative, 
and sometimes entertaining 
program dealing with student 
activities. This was to be 

The college was founded 
in 1933 to meet the needs of 
high school graduates remain- 
ing in this area. Naturally 
the primary concern of the 
college was that of academ- 

ics. By the same token the 
management of the student 
activities is vested in the 
Executive Council of Student 
Government. Social, honorary, 
interest and service clubs in- 
troduced themselves to the 
freshmen. Approximately 49 
organizations are listed in the 
catalog for the students to 

Perhaps many of our fresh- 
men are unaware of the ad- 
vantages that they may avail 
themselves of during their 
stay at the college. 

There are many; too 
many to really enumerate 
completely. We might cite 
the following: an oppor- 
tunity to be recognized by 
faculty members and fellow 
students alike by name, 

not by number; an ex- 
pressed desire forpersonal 
counclling of the student 
by instructors; the fact 
that we have a fine school 
plant and it Is becoming 
finer with the addition of 
the new and beautiful air- 
conditioned classrooms 
and dental hygiene build- 
We must never lose sight 
of the fact that we are a col- 
lege. If a graduate chances 
to recall his memories of the 
"good old college days"; 
they are exactly that; wonder- 
ful times with intimate friend- 
ships and events. This scene 
may not have been possible 
in a university of 19 or 20 
thousand students. 

It matters not whether your 

attendance at Palm" Beach 
Junior College was made by 
choice or chance; we only 
wish to make you realize that 
your stay at Florida's oldest, 
most successfully established 
junior college will be an en- 
joyable one. 

We feel that we must 
give credit to the freshmen 
where credit is due. The 
Student Government wishes 
to express its thanks and 
appreciation for the mature 
receptive manner in which 
the students conducted 
themselves during the pro- 
gram and during the lunch 
hour on campus. This leads 
us to believe your atti- 
tude concerning student 
participation in all phases 
will be enthusiastic. 

Student Government of- 
ficers are here to serve you. 
The office is located in room 
22A of the Technical build- 
ing. Please drop by, we would 
enjoy seeing you again. 

Yours truly,

Vol. XI, No. 1 


September 10. 1962 


Realistic human drama 
unfolded in the auditorium 
classroom during the second 
semester last year. The dra- 
ma revolved around a new 
addition to the landscape of 
the campus ~ The Wishing 

The Student Government 
Association under the leader- 
ship of past president Prank 
Witty, brought the long planned 
adoption of a foreign orphan 
by the students ofPalmBeach 
Junior College into reality. 

The entire college will 
adopt this orphan through its 
contributions to the wishing 
well. It will provide for its 
livelihood and education 
through a Christian Mission 

The idea of the campus 
sponsoring a "wishing well" 
was first brought up in one 
of the speech classes. After 
hearing the idea. the instruc- 
tor challenged the class to 
make it into a reality. 

The students then moved 
into their various organiza- 
tions with the idea. The Vet's 
club became the "wishing 
well's" greatest promoter.

Dr. White New 
Dean of Men 

Dr. E. Wayne White has 
been named Dean of Men in 
addition to his guidance and 
counseling positions. He will 
assume part of those duties 
previously held by Dean Paul 

Students with questions 
concerning parking, excess 
absences, or other problems 
are asked to contact Dr. White 
or his new secretary, Mrs. 
Griffin at Ad 5. 

Dr. White states, "I cer- 
tainly feel that I will have 
the cooperation of all stu- 
dents, and I hope things con- 
tinue as well as under Dean 
Glynn's direction." 


Inter-Social Club Council 
reminds all students that 
"Rush Season" is here. 

"Rush Season" for the un- 
acquainted is a period during 
which prospective social club 
members become known to 
members. This allows for the 
issuance of bids to students 
at a later date. 

Students interested in par- 
ticipating in "Rush Week" 
must pay a $1 fee between 
September 17-21. 

The I.S.C.C. will distribute 
rushing rules and information 
at an informal rush party Fri- 
day, September 21. This in- 
formal party will signify the 
start of "Rush". 

A Smoker will be held for 
the men rushees while a Tea 
will be held for the women. A 
combined party will be held 
later in the evening. During 
"Rush Week" the rushees 
will be treated to various so- 
cial activities. 

New students are reminded 
that they must be carrying 
twelve hours of work in order 
to rush. Women may rush for 
Philo, Thi Del or Tri Omega.

Palm Beach Junior College 
goes on television Sunday, 
September 30, with the first 
viewing of "College Show- 
case," a monthly half-hour 
program series on WPTV, 
Channel 5. Speech instructor 
Josh Crane, recently appoin- 
ted Television Co-ordinator 
by college president, Dr. Har- 
old C. Manor, will direct the 
series which will offer a 
"close look at one aspect of 
the junior college's purposes 
or accomplishments." 

Mr. Crane states that 
the program will seek to 
demonstrate the junior col- 
lege's role in the commun- 
ity. A former PBJC stu- 
dent, Mr. Walter Berken- 
field, will be the technical 
director and will co-ordi- 
nate "College Showcase" 
for WPTV where he is em- 
"College Showcase" will 
not be an instructional pro- 
gram, Mr. Crane has explained. 
Instead it will be more of a 
public relations type of series 
that will demonstrate to the 
viewing public what the Junior 
college is and what it is doing 
as well as giving faculty and 
students experience in this 
communication medium. 

Each program will be taped 
at the Palm Beach studios of 
Channel 5 and will feature 
film clips and slides of col- 
lege personnel and activities. 
"-We are trying to avoid the 
usual interview type format 
seen so often in local pro- 
gramming," the new co-ordi- 
nator said. "Mr. Berkenfield, 
our director, Mr. George White, 
WPTV Program Director, and 
the whole Channel 5 staff are 
very interested in carrying 
out some of the different and 
interesting ideas we have for 
the series," he added. 

Mr. Crane announced 
that the first program will 
be entitled "The Old Guard 
Remembers When" and will 
consist of an informal his- 

tory of the college as seen 
through the eyes of some of 
our senior faculty members 
and contrasting the "then" 
with the "now". 
Sound film will be taken 
on Tuesday, September 11, 
of Mr. Watson B. Duncan, III, 
chairman of the communica- 
tions department, Miss Mary 
Sue Albertson, chairman of 
the science department, Dr. 
Manor, Mrs. Esther Holt, busi- 
ness administration instruc- 
tor, Mr. E.E. Bishop, college 
registrar and School Superin- 
tendent Howell L. Watkins. 
These members of the "Old 
Guard" will remember situa- 
tions and incidents from the 
college's first three campuses: 
at Palm Beach High School 
"on the Hill", at the Air 
Force Base and at Lake Park. 
Pictures from old yearbooks 
will visualize for the view- 
ing audience the campuses 
they remember. 

Any students who are in- 
terested in working on the 
program, either as film photog- 
raphers, announcers or actors, 
should contact Mr. Crane in 
his office in the auditorium as 
soon as they are able. "There 
may be some good opportuni- 
ties for interested students," 
Crane said. 

Future programs will be 
announced in the near future.

Silently the old man placed the cup of helmock beside 
his couch, stretched out comfortably, and went to sleep. It 
was the end of Socrates' life but just the beginning of an 
immortal idea. "Know Thyself" Socrates said to all he 
taught, in an age of pomp and circumstance, in an age when 
knowledge and learning flourished. To know thyself meant 
to understand ones own abilities, to enhance them, to be- 
lieve in them, and to enjoy them. To die unjustly was not 
the end, but not to evoke the reverberating sound of life 
itself was eternal damnation. For this Socrates lived. To- 
day this rhetorical adage recaptivates the criterion for a 
new era of unending advancement. Only through personal 
evaluation and self inventory can these undying words be- 
come reality. We must set by Thoreau's Walden Pond before 
tapping the moon's craters. Thoreau would have us draw 
the real marrow out of life, find why each of us are here, 
and then go from there. But in a day when the wheels of 
technology unceasingly grind, we find little time for self 
esteem. Stopping for just a moment at a red light, we let 
our minds wander, delighting in pure carefreeness, only to 
be jarred by the blasting horn of an impatient driver behind 
us. Hurriedly we are keeping pace with the hands of time, 
but too often time leaves us behind, empty and broken in 
spirit. Our purpose is not to race with time, but to spend 
much of it alone, finding outselves. Only then will we be 
equipped for outerspace. If we would but stop to examine a 
tiny snowflake with its intricate geometric design, we could 
perceive a small part of the symmetry in the universe with 
every particle in accordance. Our advances in science show 
us the possibility of other inhabited planets. Surely lying 
ahead of us is a vast world of unspeakable wonders, a sec- 
ond Renaissance on the horizon. Between our planet and the 
stars lies one link, the human intellect. We as pioneers of 
a new and exciting age must bridge this span, keeping 
alive individual thought and self esteem. Exploring outer- 
space can be fulfilled only by exploring our innerself. In 
this, our search through the heavens, may we first truly 
find our place as thinking mortals in an ever-engulfing

The staff of the Beach- 
comber would like to request 
that all Palm Beach junior

cause it is impossible for the 
staff to get in touch with 
every organization and report

This would not only help 
the paper but would help your 
club attain the publicity it 

A notice of the Beach-

The College Forum has 
become the basis for a con- 
stant group exchange of new 
thoughts and ideas. It pro- 
vides the opportunity for the 
student to correlate today's 
news with today's thinking. 
Mr. Tucker, the faculty ad- 
viser, has organized this 
year's program to stimulate 
group discussion of pressing, 
currenc issues. His guest 
speakers are outstanding in 
their fields and discuss sub- 
jects that are of the utmost 
importance to Americans of 
all ages. 

The lectures are presented 
at 9:55 a.m. in the college 
auditorium. Membership is 
free and the attendance of 
both student and faculty mem- 
bers is encouraged. The day 
after these meetings, interes- 
ted students may meet at 
7:30 p.m. to express their 
views on the topic under dis- 
cussion. Regular business 
meetings are held the second 
Wednesday of each month in 
room 23. 

The series of programs 
will be opened on Wednesday, 
September 26, by Dr. Hyman 
J. Roberts, a local physician, 
who will speak on expanding 
the social security system to 
include health insurance. 

Wednesday, October 24, 
Mrs. Mamie Jo Gillespie will 
also discuss expanding the 
social security system to in- 
clude health insurance. Mrs. 
Gillespie, well acquainted 
with the social security sys- 
tem, will discuss this pro- 
blem from an advocates point 
of view. Further information 
concerning these first two 
discussions may be found in 
Outside Reading in Sociology, 
articles 59 through 61. 

Later topics will include 
American prayer, Russia's 
educational system, the or- 
ganization of the unorganized 
worker, economic health and 
the tariff laws, and tariffs

English Instructor Has 
New Book Published 

After extensive work and 
careful planning, Miss Emma 
S. Phillips has completed her 
book, A Review of English 
Fundamentals, which has 
been published recently. The 
text places great stress upon 
fundamental grammar and 
sentence structure. It has 
been used in mimeographed 
form, not only by Palm Beach 
Junior College but also by 
Minnesota's Itaskas Univer- 
sity and by Penn State Under- 
graduate School, to supple- 
ment other English books. Its 
asset value was clearly dem- 
onstrated, and as a result to- 
day we have a revised edition 

including additional factor 
brought into focus during thi 
trial period. 

Now a member of the Eng 
lish department atPalmBeac 
Junior College, Miss Phillip 
'is originally from Indiana. Sh 
attended Indiana Universit 
where she received her B.A 
and M.A. During the summers 
she did advanced graduat 
work also at Indiana Univei 
sity. She spent two semester: 
at Grenobl in southern Franc 
studying French literature 
Before coming to Florida i 
1958, she spent some 15 year 
teaching in her home stat 
and in Illinois. 

Presidential Greeting 


I look forward each year to the arrival of the new stu- 
dents and the opportunity to extend to each of you a warm 
welcome to Palm Beach Junior College. It is also pleasant 
to greet again our returning students. I urge you to become 
well acquainted with our excellent faculty. They will assist 
you in planning your studies and guide you in achieving 
your academic goals. 

I sincerely hope this school year will be one of out- 
standing personal and academic achievement for each of 

Two buildings are under construction, a general Class- 
room Building just north of the Administration Building, 
and the Dental Health Education Building located to the 
north of the Technical Building. Plans are being completed 
for a Humanities Classroom Building, the new College 
Bookstore and Receiving Center, an addition to the secvice 
building, and additional parking areas. 

These additional physical facilities will enable the 
College to continue to accept even larger groups of stu- 
dents each year and to provide the s pecial programs nec- 
essary for a continually expanding curriculum. 

The College Assembly Committee and your Student Gov- 
ernment are bringing a number of fine programs to the cam- 
pus this year. The College Forum is presenting an interest- 
ing series of lectures and discussions. Other departments 
have planned programs of educational import and general 
interest. Palm Beach Junior College is privileged to have 
these programs available and you are invited to attend the 
entire series. 

It is most pleasant to have all of you on campus and I 
hope to meet each of you during the year.

Burt Reynolds 

Palm Beach Junior Col- 
lege's outstanding contribu- 
tion to the motion pictures, 
the stage, and television, 
Burt Reynolds, will make his 
debut as a regular co-star on 
CBS's Gunsmoke September 
15 on Channel four. 

Reynolds will portray a 
half-breed Indian who is won 
over from hating whites by 
Matt Dillon (James Arness). 
The character was taken from 
Nevada Smith in "The Carpet- 

Reynolds is now on a per- 
sonal appearance tour in con- 
nection with the beginning of 
the new "Gunsmoke" series. 
For seven years "Gun- 
smoke" has not added a regu- 
lar performer until Reynolds 
was signed. Reynolds was or- 
iginally to replace Dennis 
Weaver, who was planning his 
own show. Plans call for Wea- 
ver to return to "Gunsmoke" 
and for Reynolds to be an ad- 
ded regular to the show. 

Reynolds is a former 
! president of PBJC's Phi 
! Rho Pi and winner of the 
: PBJC Best Actor Award. 
I To show his appreciation 
< and love for PBJC, he has 
; been instrumental in set- 
•, ting up the Burt Reynolds - 
: Lake Worth Playhouse Dra- 
; ma Scholarship of $1200.00 
! for a graduating PBJC 
: sophomore in the field of 
speech and drama. 
The first such scholarship 
was given last June to Jim 
Martin, who will continue his 
education at FSU in the field 
of speech. 

Debaters Needed 

Students who are interested 
in trying out fof the debate 
team are urged to prepare pre- 
liminary speeches on the na- 
tional, collegiate debate topic 
for the year, "Resolved; the 
non-communist nations of the 
* world should establish an ec- 
onomic community." Open try- 
outs will be held at a time to 
be announced, according to 
Mr. Wayne Rollins, new de- 
bate coach for the college. 
The debate club will meet 
Tuesday of each week begin- 
ning September 11 at 9:50 a.m. 
in the auditorium classroom. 
Club membership is open to 
all interested students not ac- 
ademically deficient. 

Tentative plans for this 
year's program call for a de- 
bate workshop with other jun- 
ior colleges and intercolle- 
giate team debating at the Un- 
iversity of Florida, Florida 
State University and Phi Rho 
Pi invitational tournaments. 

Soviet Studies 

New Course 

in Evening Division 

A new concept in educa- 
tion is to be introduced in the 
evening Division in a course 
entitled "Introduction to 
Soviet Studies." 

Mr. George Hofmann is 
teaching this new course 
which is open to evening 
students only. 

Mr. Hofmann points out 
that this study is unique in 
that it involves more than one 
department area. 

The .three credit course 
will delve into the Soviet 
Union and its people, not as 
a threat to the Western World, 
but as a factual perspective 
of the U.S.S.R. 

A broad sweep of early 
Russian Kievon Rus to 
present day changes will 
enable students to grasp 
the topography of Russia, 
her capabilities in econ- 
omy, agriculture, and in- 
The evening class will 
also enlighten the students 
concerning political and cli- 
matic forces within the Rus- 
sian economy. 

The basic Russian person- 
ality, both psychological and 
social, as influenced by cli- 
matic conditions, will be dis- 
cussed; contrasting it to the 
Western European patern of 

The underlying force of 
State, the ideology of 
Communism, will be ex- 
plored as it applies to the 
Soviet people. 
This past summer Mr. Hof- 
mann and Mr. Payge Dampier 
participated in the American- 
ism vs. Communism workshop 
at Florida State University in 
Tallahassee. Some Florida 
teachers were told that they 
could be confident that stu- 
dents would become better 
champion of Americanism as 
against Communism by ap- 
proaching the problem factu- 

It is hoped that keen in- 
terest will stimulate not only 
evening students, but also a 
need for materializing avail- 
able classes in Soviet Studies 
for day students during the 
spring semester. 

Helen Hayes, Charles Willeford, PBJC '61, during re- 
hearsals of "The Cherry Tree" outside the Royal 
Poinciana Playhouse. Willeford played the postmaster 
in the Chekov play. 


Charles Willeford, a 1961 graduate of the Junior College, 
has recently won the Book-of-the-Month award for his novel, 

Authoring eight novels, several essays for service mag- 
azines, poetry, and fiction, Mr. Willeford was described by 
one writer as a retired Master sergeant; a balding, pot-bel- 
lied, 43-year-old pro with the handsomest mustache west 
of Stalingrad, plus a local pupil who made good. 

Willeford dropped out of the eighth grade to enter the 
11th Cavalry. He fought with the tenth Armored Division in 
Europe. He won two purple hearts, the bronze star, the sil- 
ver star, and the croix de guerre. He is thinking of combin- 
ing writing with teaching, although he feels that he has 
little to say to young writers. 

Mr. Willeford feels that the whole matter centers 
around this: Grow into the habit of writing, for here lies 
half the fight. Complete a novel, good or bad, but let 
yourself know that you can do it. With no substitute for 
reading and writing, you must work. 
It seems quite fitting that a Floridian should write the 
"Cockfighter," as Florida is the only state in which cock- 
fighting is not illegal. 

Mr. Willeford won the state title in extemporaneous 
speaking for PBJC in 1961.

Phi Da Di Initiates New 
Series of Meetings 

The first of a series of 
monthly, program meetings of 
the Phi Da Di Social-Service 
Club of Palm Beach Juniur 
College was held in the Com- 
munity Room of the First Fed- 
eral Savings and Loan of 
West Palm Beach. 

Tom Wells, the September 
chairman, commented that the 
organization wanted these 
pertinent, informative pro- 
grams in addition to the regu- 
lar, weekly business meetings. 

Phi Da Di was host to re- 
presentatives of the I.S.C.C., 
Student Government officers, 
and sponsoring faculty mem- 
bers. The guest speakers 
were the Reverend* Albert 
Shiphorst, pastor of the First 
Presbyterian Church of Boca 
Raton; and Mr. Dan O'Connell, 
state executive of the nation- 
al fraternity ATO, and an ac- 
tive member of the Student 
Government Association at 
the University of Florida. 

Rev. Shiphorst, discussing 
the ruling of the Supreme 
Court concerning morning 
prayer in public schools, said 
that the decision has helped 
to clarify and reveal a basic, 
all-important truth. A firm 
religious background, insti- 
tuted in the home, cannot be 
retarded or erased by a court 
ruling. Although the ruling 
has upset an established cus- 
tom, it has strengthened and 
proven the necessity of indi- 
vidual responsibility in reli- 
gious education. 

Mr. O'Connell spoke with 
optimism of the future of na- 
tional fraternities and sorori- 
ties and the PBJC social 
clubs. He pointed out that 
although the primary purpose 
of the student is to gain an 
education, social outlets on 
campus are also very impor- 
tant. Social groups, offering 
no program to assist the stu- 
dent in his scholastic endea- 
vor, can only jeopardize his 

his future on the campus. 

To wind up the program, 
Rae Trompilino, an experi- 
enced guitarist, entertained 
the group with several selec- 
tions. After a light refresh- 
ment, the meeting was closed 
at 11:15 p.m. 

New German Course 

The Evening Division Pro- 
gram is offering two new 
courses: Elementary German 
and Introduction to Soviet 

Elementary German, offered 
at 7:10 to 9:50 on Friday, 
should be quite helpful to 
pre-med students. With no 
prerequisite necessary, the 
course has been approved by 
the state Department as eli- 
gible for credit on a teachers' 
certificate. Dr. Butterfield of 
University of Miami will con- 
duct the course.

The stage adaption of Tho- 
mas Wolfe's novel, "Look 
Homeward, Angel," will kick- 
off the season Oct. 25, 26 
and 27, followed by Archibald 
MacLeish's, "J.B." 

The final production of the 
season will be an English 
fantasy, "The Admirable 
Crichton," by J.M. Barrie. 

Tickets for the entire sea- 
son are available for the first 
time, reports Bill Plorey, sub- 
scription drive chairman. 
Holders of season tickets may 
reserve auditorium seats by 
telephoning the college prior 
to the production. 

In previous years the full 
schedule of plays has been 
held secret until two months 
prior to the production. 

Adult season tickets are 
$3 and student tickets are 
$2.25, said Plorey. Tickets 
may be obtained from members 
of Phi Rho Pi, national hon- 
orary speech and forensic 

Tryouts were scheduled to- 
day and Tuesday for "Look 
Homeward, Angel," written 
for the stage by Ketti Pringe. 
The play won the Pulitzer 
Prize for play writing in 1958 
and the New York Critics' 
Award the same year. 

The story recreates the 
family of Eugene Gant (Wolfe 
himself)~Eliza Gant, his mo- 
ther, obsessed by her material 
holdings, raising her own bar- 
riers against the love of her 
family; W.O. Gant, his father, 
imprisoned by his own fail- 
ures; Ben Gant, the brother 
who never broke away. 

There are 10 male charac- 
ters, nine female characters 
and two extras in the play.

The Student Government be- 
came the overall coordina- 
tors of the projects. 

Various campus organiza- 
tions donated both time and 
money to the project. Phi Rho 
Di, Tri Omega, Mature Stu- 
dents Club and the Vet's Club 
made financial contributions. 
Other organizations made 
pledges of financial support 
to be given this year. 

The contributions of the 
students themselves will be 
collected from the well and 
placed in a special fund by 
the Student Government. A 
formal, framed letter is set 
to be placed in the library 
explaining the history and 
purpose of the fountain and 
listing its contributors. 

The founders of this wish- 
ing well hope that the stu- 
dents of PBJC will make it a 
tradition for years to come. 


Individual photos will be 
made for the Galleon, the col-

Miss Royce Tells of European Trip 

By Rebecca Greene 

Miss Letha Madge Royce, 
chairman of the music depart- 
ment who recently returned 
from a six week educational 
tour of communist dominated 

On her trip, Miss Royce 
visited East Berlin, Germany; 
Prague, Chezoslavakia; Bud- 
apest, Hungary; Sophia, Bul- 
garia; and Bubrovnil, Yugo- 
slavia. Miss Royce also visi- 
ted the free countries of Eng- 
land, Prance, Turkey and 

In a recent interview 
Miss Royce discussed her 
journey. "The free lands 
were beautiful and wonder- 
ful" she commented, "Per- 
haps the most exciting 
tour of the trip came in 
Istanbul, Turkey. Our 
guide was a Moslem and 
everyone there told us to 
thank the Americans for 
for the aid sent to them." 
Miss Royce told of the 
thrill in riding gondolas in 
Venice, seeing an ex-sul- 
tan's Palace and visiting a 
folk music festival. 

She continued by discus- 
sing the communistic coun- 
tries. "Of course, the most 
dramatic phase of the visit 
was to East Berlin. We had 
to pass through 'the wall' 
twice. We passed through 
'Check Point Charlie'. On 

the East side of the wall one 
was struck by the number of 
women crying and children 
standing at the gates. On the 
other, or free side, of the 
wall one could see an obser- 
vation platform and people 
waving and shouting." 

"East Berlin," she 
continued, "was uniqut-- 
full of Russian soldiers. 
One woman told me she 
felt sorry for the soldiers 
since they could not talk 
to the East Berliners and 
seemed so lonely." 
Miss Royce told of how 
that in all the communist dom- 
inated countries the Red Star 
was displayed in neon lights. 
In the Russian countries the 
hammar and side appeared 
beside the star. 

The average monthly pay 
of $70 amazed Miss Royce. 
Rent, she commented, was 
$10 a month but the govern- 
ment, in the communistic 
countries, decided upon the 
location and size of housing. 
The availability of food sup- 
plies also astounded her. 
Meat, she found, was almost 
unavailable; potatoes and 
coal supplies were rationed; 
and eggs cost close to ld<t a 

Windows, continued Miss 
Royce, were well stocked for 
window shopping, but when 

you got inside the store • 
the shelves were almost barf 
The people were, howevei 
interested in the clothin 
available to the peoples c 
the free world. Gold and cry! 
tal watches especially fas 
cinated them." 

Miss Royce then rela- 
ted how her group had re- 
quested to see all of the 
churches possible . she 
told of how the guide snor- 
ted and spit at a cathedral. 
She then explained that 
he wanted to show them 
only the new, modern 
buildings, but the group 
refused to get out of the 
car until they could see 
what they wanted to see. 
One guide, she reported, 
even admitted that it was 
not wise to attend church 
If one had children in 
"On the whole, we weri 
very well treated, althoug! 
we felt w e were being w atched 
I wish our government wouli 
spend some more money fo 
armament; because we fel 
as if we were on a tim< 
bomb," she stated. 

In conclusion, she said 
"I'm more appreciative of mj 
American citizenship thai 
ever before. I won't even re 
sent paying income tax this 

board in the student center. 
Because of the anticipated 
large number of pictures, stu- 
dents are urged to sign the 
schedule early. Do not wait 
until the last week. 

Men will wear coats and 
ties for their pictures. Girls 
will wear dressy school 
clothes, and, if they wish, 
simple jewelry such as a 
strand of pearls.

Dean Glynn Available! 

For the first time in five 
years, it is now possible to 
see Dean Paul Glynn. 

In the past, Dean Glynn 
has played the double role of 
Dean of Men and Dean of Stu- 
dent Personnel. Almost any 
item needing advice or con- 
sent was referred to the peer- 
less Mr. Glynn; consequently 
only a few students were able 
to see the Dean. This year 
as a result of the appointment 
of a new Dean of Men, Mr. 
Glynn will be able to devote 
all of his time to the welfare 
of his students. 

Students interested in part 
time jobs should contact Mrs. 
Blesh in the Student Person- 
nel Office or refer to the job 
placement bulletin board in 

that office. 

Housing lists are now 
available for students need- 
ing rooms or apartments. 
Those who prefer roommates 
to share expenses should 
contact Dean Glynn during the 
10 o'clock break. 

Rides and car pools may 
be worked out with Dean 
Glynn during the break, this 
first week of school. 

Parking this year will be 
supervised by the new college 
policeman, Mr. Phillips, under 
the direction of Dr. Wayne 
White, the new Dean of Men. 

Anyone who did not re- 
ceive a student handbook will

phers. Other staff members 
include: Jackie Sanguesa, 
Sharon Adams, Steve Gordon, 
Frank Mesa, Kenneth Kissel 
and John Hess. 

The assignments have not 

[ all been made, and there is 
room for many more staff mem- 
bers, especially in the fields 
of photography and as solici- 
tors. Incidentally, ad solici- 
tors receive a ten per cent 
commission, could be a good 
way to earn some extramoney! 
Tooley Myron Studio is 
doing the individual student 
photography for the Galleon 
which will be the new college 
size of 9" by 12" this year. 
Candid campus shots will 
also be gladly accepted. 

"Positions are still avail- 
able for students interested 
in working for the Galleon 
staff this year," said faculty 
advisor John Piatt.

which appeared in early an- 
nuals from the three former 
campuses will be used in 
addition to interviews with 
senior members of the faculty. 

"Few people realize that 
Palm Beach Junior College is 
the oldest public junior col- 
lege in the state," stated 
Josh Crane, Television Co- 
ordinator for the College. He 
continued, "This program will 
give the viewers an idea of 
the growth of the. junior col- 
lege in this state." 

Reminiscences of County 
Superintendent Howell L. 
Watkins, Department Heads 
Watson B. Duncan, III, and 
Mary Sue Albertson; Regis- 
trar Elbert Bishop, President 
Harold C. Manor, and faculty 
member Esther Holt are co- 
ordinated with a series of 
pictures to enable a compari- 
son of the new and the old. 
Ensuing pro grams to appear 
in the monthly series will 

illustrate the role of Palm 
Beach Junior College in the 
greater Palm Beach area. 

WPTV director Walter Ber- 
kenfield and film editor Ken- 
neth Coleman are cooperating

cets of college life and stu- 
dents and faculty talent. 

The October showcase 
will feature "Tomorrow's Wri- 
ters Today." This program is 
a survey of students and fac- 
ulty; of prose and poetry, both 
humorous and serious, gleaned 
mainly from Media , the col- 
lege literary magazine. The 
viewing date for this show 
case will be October 28 at

Five of last year's award 
winning drama students re- 
turn to the Palm Beach Ju- 
nior College stage in the Oc- 
tober 25, 26 and 27 production 
of "Look Homeward, Angel". 

The play, written by Ketti 
Fringes based upon the novel 
of the same name by Thomas 
Wolfe was awarded the Pu- 
litzer Prize in 1958 and the 
New York Critics' Award in 
the same year. 

Steve Jones, winner of the 
award for the best minor char- 
ecterization for his role in 
"Johnny Belinda", copped the 
the male lead. He portrays 
Eugene Gant, who is said to 
be representative of the au- 
thor Wolfe himself. 

Opposite him, in the lead- 
ing female role, is Gloria 
Maddox, who was awarded 
the best actress award for her 
role as Belinda In "Johnny 
Belinda". Gloria portrays 
Eliza Gant, mother of Eugene. 

The role of E.O. Gant, Eu-

ber of the University of Miami 
since 1945. 

Professor Butterfield re- 
ceived his master's degree in 
French at McGill University 
and holds an honorary doctor- 
ate of Human Letters from 
Hillsdale College in Michigan. 

Before coming to the Uni-

Over this three and a half 
year period, he trained about 
4,000 people. 

Although widely-traveled, 
and well-versed in 12 lan- 
guages, Dr. Butterfield has 
made teaching his career and 
life. During this ensuing year, 
students at PBJC may well 
have the opportunity to enjoy 
this new addition to the cur-

BEACHCOMBER, September 25, 1962 

ScAotl SfrOUt - A State *£ HUkcI! 

If man is literally what he 
thinks he is, then he is the 
master of his thoughts, the 
shaper of his condition, en- 
vironment and destiny. School 
spirit, then, is a state of 

Any situation is only as 
successful as we make it. 
The success of a situation 
can be determined by a per- 
son's optimism and working 
desire to do the best with 
what is at hand. 

Think for a moment of our 
colonial forefathers who won 
for themselves, against over- 
whelming odds, their free- 
dom. Think of a minority 
group against a nation of prej- 
udice to give women the pow- 
er to vote, won the Women's 
Temperance League. These 
are examples of individuals 
in groups who had optimism 
and desire to do for them- 

What, then, is the point of 
this article? . . . College 
esprit de corps, or, without 
sophistication, simply school 
spirit. No matter what we call 
it, we are faced with two 
questions about this intangi- 
ble quality. Why and how, we 
may ask ourselves, should 
we strive for this spirit? 

What would happen if the 
students of this college did 
not communicate with each 
other? Learning would be 
greatly hindered if not 
stopped completely. It had 

been said that we come to 
college to reap the benefits 
or communication more than 
those of self study. One rea- 
son why we should develop 
this esprit de corps, then, is 
to enhance communication 
and, therefore augment our 
educational opportunities. 

Would it be easier to know 
a 25,000-strong student body 
or a congenial 1800-strong 
student body? It should be 
easier to have co-operation 
and congeniality in a smaller 
group than in a larger one. 
Possibly we should make a 
formula here: 


Let's analyze this, keep- 
ing in mind why we should 
strive for better spirit. Co- 
operation depends largely on 
the receptive mood of a group 
to ideas. It also depends on 
the optimism and desire to 
work with what is given. 
These entities a group should 
possess to give co-operation. 

But again we ask why? 
Through co-operation we ac- 
complish goals. By accom- 
plishing goals for a group we 
are accomplishing goals 
which the individual himself 
cannot attain. Co-operation 
leads to self improvement on 
the group level. We should 
be receptive to beneficial 
goals in order to improve our- 
selves and make our college's 
destiny one of greatness, or 
at least success. 

Congeniality puts us in a 

more receptive mood which 
helps us want to become more 
co-operative for our own good. 

In addition to enhancing 
education through communi- 
cation we want to develop 
esprit de corps through co- 
operation and congeniality. It 
seems that many times we 
hear ideas on why we should 
do something, but we seldom 
hear how to do it. Here, then, 
was our first plan to help 
augment our school spirit. 

Vocal communication with 
the other members of the stu- 
dent body seemed to be the 
best route for enhancing 
school spirit. Therefore, we 
put into effect what we called 
a "speaking campaign." The 
freshmen were requested to 
wear plastic campaign badges 
giving their name and where 
they were from. We asked 
that the entire student body 
be receptive to the "speaking 
campaign," that they would 
be co-operative by wearing 
the badges through September 
14, and that they would be 
congenial by saying "Hello" 
to new and old members of 
the student body. 

We feel that the campaign 
was a success, but there is 
room for improvement. 

Please remember, although 
you have probably heard this 
before, school spirit begins 
and ends with the individual. 
So, please, help us to help

An Open Letter to Readers 

In the first issue of the

it was evident that news from 
many departments and offices 
was among the missing, for 
various reasons, some known 
only to you. 

In the coming issues we 
aspire not only more compre- 
hensive coverage but also 
greater creative writing in 

Studies should come first 
on the agenda; however, for 
some students the newspaper 
serves as a journalistic and 
creative workship. It provides

complex life of a student that 
a different facet of campus 
news is not brought to the 
foreground. Someone has said 
that there are no dull days, 
only dull reporters.

my comrades in American ed-

iments of learning and greater 
depths in aspects of under- 
standing. That we will in-

These are a few of the statements ringing in the ear 

nearly 1,000 Floridians. The thousand heard them at 

Florida Governor's Conference on Cold War Education, 

first of its kind in the country. 

At least one other state has done something similar, 
Governor Farris Bryant pioneered in bringing together a gi 
of nationally known speakers. They talked for nearly twi 
hours this summer at the Americana Hotel, Miami Beach. T 
words filled many a notebook carried by delegates- from e' 
corner of the state. 

A favorite with the audience was Dr. Bella Dodd, an 
Communist. She told how she fell into Communist member i 
in the 1930's because of her aversion to the rise of Fasc 
in Europe. 

"I was willing to join with the devil himself to fight 
Fascists," she related. "The will to do goodness witl 
any philosophy of your own is a powerful reason for joii 
the Communist Party. We must build our own philosophy 
that our children can understand what's right and wh 

Another whose speech was often interrupted by appla 
was Serafino Romualdi, Inter-American representative of 
AFL-CIO. He told of a meeting which was set to start Aut 
1 in Chile, "to set up a new Latin American labor group 
will replace the Communist group which has existed be 
in those lands." 

Mr. Romualdi believes the United States, before sen< 
more Alliance for Progress aid, should ask Latin Ameri 
governments: "What are you doing to perserve your own de 
cratic form of government and stop totalitarianism from tat 

He said too many Latin American governments have b 
lax on this score, "I don't believe that democracy should 
so blind, so unconcerned as to let Communists use free* 
to destroy freedom." 

He declared the two recent revolts in Venezuela were " 
by university students— sons of the bourgeoisie, some son: 
rich men— whose minds had been captured by Communism, 
"The peasants were the ones who saved the democn 
regime," he declared. "Peasants in Latin America unders* 
this matter better than some of the university professors > 
say that the only way to combat Communism is to fill 

Nearly every speaker mentioned faith as the cornerst 
of freedom in the struggle against Communism. 

Dr. William Elliott of Harvard University termed Com 
nism "a heresy." He said it must be destroyed as a ma 
formula by "showing that it has no magic." 

The Governors Conference had many other opportunities 
offer your Student Government President as he was the 
rect representative of the students at Palm Beach Jm 

We had an opportunity to meet and discuss the vari 
aspects of the conference with a large delegation of colli 
administrators, among whom was college president, Dr. Hai 
C Manor. 

We also met and spoke with such members of the st 
and local legislature as: State Representative Jerry Thor 
and State Senator Ralph Blank. Businessmen and worn 
educators, clergymen, Parent Teacher Association repres 
tatives, law enforcement officers and every area of citi: 
interest was represented there. 

Mr. Thomas D. Bailey, Florida State Superintendent 
Public Instruction talked with us on the new course to 
taught in public high schools, Americanism vs. Communis 
Mr. Bailey informally outlined the basic "concepts" gove 
ing the course. 

In general, these include: A study of Communism as pr 
ticed in the Soviet Union, not in Red China or other Comi 
nist land. 

"A critical analytical approach" to the subject, rat 
than merely "comparing and contrasting" the Russian sysf 
to the American. 

A study of "the whole system rather than its parts 
Such an investigation would include examination of the Cc 
munist philosophy, methods of reasoning and style of 1 

"A rational rather than an emotional approach" to 
subject. Fear and emotionalism must be avoided. 

Development in the students of a "greater appreciation 
American democracy." 

The course will include study of the Soviet system 
operated by Nikita Khrushchev today. 

As a member of the delegation, I would like to offer 
congratulations to the governor on a most successful g 
informative conference. 

Mr. Becherer Gives Trip Impressions 

BEACHCOMBER, September 25, 1962

Floyd O. Becherer, social 
I science and history instruc- 
I tor, recently returned to Palm 
? Beach Junior College after 
■spending a summer abroad, 
I studying under an English 
I Speaking Union summer study 
'■ scholarship. 

Mr. Becherer, accompanied 
j by his wife Jean — a second 
I grade teacher, studying under 
I a scholarship grant from her 
school, Palm Beach Private 
School -- studied at Edinburgh 
University, Edinburgh, Scot- 
land. Mr. Becherer- studied 
English History, Philosophy 
and Literature from 1688- 
1832, while his wife studied 

Recently, Mr. Becherer re- 
counted his adventures in an 
exuberant manner. 

"The course in which I 
was enrolled had 125 stu- 
dents. Of these students ap- 
proximately 80% of them were 
Americans, studying either on 
similar scholarships or on 
their own. The remaining 
20%," he remarked, "were of 
differing national origins." 
In order to find out how 
the rest of tjje world felt and 
reacted to various things, Mr. 
Becherer mingled,' a majority 
of the time, with the 20% 'of 
foreign students. He com- 
mented that he found them to 
be very well informed on 
and very concerned with world 

"They were especially 
concerned about what the fu- 
ture has to offer them", he 

Around the six-week course 
of study, the Becherers wove 
eight to ten days in London; 
as well as some time in the 
British countryside. 

Concerning the area of 
Scotland in which they stud- 
ied, he had this thought —"It 
was cold! The Scottish people 
even complained of the chilly 
weather." He went on by say- 
ing, "It was so cold that 
heavy woolen clothing had to 
be worn to attain any measure 
of comfort." 

The British people, he 
found, were very friendly and 
easy to talk to (they spoke 
the same language). They 
proved to be quite anxious to 
talk with him." 

Following their course of 
study, the Becherers toured 
the continent of Europe for' 
three weeks before returning 
to the States. On their itiner- 
ary were: Holland, Belgium, 

Mr. Becherer is seen in his office upon returning from his 
trip to England 

Germany, Austria, France, 
Spain and Portugal. 

Mr. Becherer credits their 
being able to see so much of 
the continent of Europe to the 
discovery of the air multi-stop 
flight plan which many of the 
airlines have. He explained 
that this plan gave them trips 
to seven countries for only a 
small amount more than a 
round trip ticket to Paris, 
France would cost. Also high 
on his list for necessities on 
a European trip is the guide- 
book he discovered which en- 
ables one person to see, as 
said by the title, "Europe on 
Five Dollars a Day. "He says 
that this price . is for food 
(which he found to better in 
Europe) and lodging. 

Most of their sight-seeing 
on the continent was from the 
window of a jet plane—30,000 
feet up. However, they did 
get out to see some of the 

A helicopter ride from 
Brussels to Cologne, a ser- 
vice of Sabina Airlines, pro- 
vided them with the opportun- 
ity to see some of the land- 
scape of Belgium. "On this 
trip we saw towns, cities, 
factories, manor houses, cas- 
tles, and a general view of 
the country. 

The Orient Express which 
runs between Paris and Vien- 
na, provided another oppor- 
tunity to see the country. 
From the train window one 
could see old castles and the 
beginnings of the Alps. 
Plaques could be seen com- 
memorating the birth or death 
places of such people as Mo- 
zart and Schubert. 

They saw Paris from their 
rooms on the Left Bank and 
spent a day tramping through 
gardens at the Palace of Ver- 

sailles. Another day saw them 
in Spain touring the country- 
side in a small car. In Spain, 
peasants could be seen along 
the roadside leading burrows 
as their ancestors had for 
thousands of years. A visit 
to Munich "The Fun City" 
was also enjoyed, 

"Perhaps the portion of 
the trip best enjoyed was that 
which we spent in Northern 
Europe where you had no dif- 
ficulty in finding someone 
who spoke English," com- 
mented Mr. Becherer. "I could 
remember approximately fifty 
basic words of Spanish which 
helped in the Spanish speak- 
ing countries. In the other 
countries we managed by a 
method of pantomine." 

When asked his impres- 
sions of his trip, he 'replied, 
"Europe seemed to be a bust- 
ling, prosperous content, tend- 
ing toward economic unity 
which will in time bring- about 
political and cultural unity." 

"The people, at least the 
ones I talked to appeared very 
pro-West in their political 
leanings. It seemed that they 
felt we (the U.S.) talked more 
than we acted, and disliked 
us for that. They *feel that 
some actions must be taken 
against the Soviets but dis- 
agree as to what the action 
should be." 

"In forming my opinions I 
talked to several people from 
chambermaids to passengers 
on planes and trains, and 
found evidence to support my 
opinions. However, I wouldn't 
pretend that my sampling of 
opinion is scientific— it was 
taken by chance and may show 
the exception rather than the 

When asked for one last 
comment, Mr. Becherer re- 
plied, "I'd like to go again!" 

'Religious Life Important' - Dean Glynn 

With the scholastic year 
once again commencing, Dean 
Paul J. Glynn, is urging that 
students get off on the right 
foot not only scholastically 
but religiously as well. 

The religious groups are 
again beginning to organize 
for the school year and Dean 
Glynn would like to remind 
students that there is a place 
for each and every one in one 
of the groups. 

Dean Glynn recently spoke 
to the Lake Worth Ministerial 
Association asking for their 
help in encouraging the forma- 
tion of religious interest 
clubs on campus and helping 
in finding a church home for 
students off campus. 

Students of practically all 
religious faiths and denomina- 
tions can find a religious or- 
ganization that harmonizes 
with his or her religious views. 

The religious organiza- 
tions offer a varied program 

of spiritual and recreational 
activities to their members. 
Any student may join one of 
these organizations by simply 
attending their meetings. 
Meeting dates, times, and 
places are- posted in the bul- 

The Collegiate Fellow- 
ship, sponsored by Mr. Cur- 
tis Gentry, is available for 
all students of the Protestant 
faith to attend. 

Baptist students are urged 
to attend the Baptist Student 
Union, sponsored by Mr. Don 

Miss Rose Biancarose, 
sponsors the Newman Club 
which invites all students of 
the Catholic faith to attend 
its meetings. 

Students who are members 
of or interested in the Epis- 
copal faith may join the Can- 
terbury Club under the spon- 
sorship of Mr. Craig Gathman. 

Jewish students meet in 
the Jewish Student Fellow- 
ship under the guidance of 
Mr. William Kirshner. 

Mr. Knud Alber is the spon- 
sor of the Lutheran Student 
Association which opens its 
membership to all students of 
the Lutheran faith. 

Dr. Sidney Davies, PBJC 
Bible instructor, leads the 
Methodist Student Movement 
in its meetings. 

Other groups having indi- 
cated their interest in forming 
religious organizations to 
Dean Glynn are: Church of 
Christ under Chuck Kulp; 
Congregationalist Church un- 
der Bob Bloodworth; and 
Christian Scientists under 
Maureen Mahoney. 

Those religious groups

(Author of "I Was a Teen-age Dwarf," "The Many 
Loves of Dobie Gillis," etc.) 


With today's entry I begin my ninth year of writing columns 
in your school newspaper for the makers of Marlboro Cigarettes. 
Nine years, I believe you will agree, is a long time. In fact, 
it took only a little longer than nine years to dig the Suez 
Canal, and you know what a gigantic undertaking that was! 
To be sure, the work would have gone more rapidly had the 
shovel been invented at that time, but, as we all know, the 
shovel was not invented until 1946 by Walter R. Shovel of 
Cleveland, Ohio. Before Mr. Shovel's discovery in 1946, all 
digging was done with sugar tongs— a method unquestionably 
dainty but hardly what one would call rapid. There were, natu- 
rally, many efforts made to speed up digging before Mr. Shovel's 
breakthrough— notably an attempt in 1912 by the immortal 
Thomas Alva Edison to dig with the phonograph, but the only 
thing that happened was that he got his horn full of sand. This 
so depressed Mr. Edison that he fell into a fit of melancholy 
from which he did not emerge until two years later when his 
friend William Wordsworth, the eminent nature poet, cheered 
him up by imitating a duck for four and a half hours. 

But I digress. For nine years, I say, I have been writing this 
column for the milkers of Marlboro Cigarettes, and for nine 
years they have been paying me money. You are shocked. You 
think that anyone who has tasted Marlboro's unparalleled 
flavor, who has enjoyed Marlboro's filter, who has revelled in 
Marlboro's jolly red and white pack or box should be more than 
willing to write about Marlboro without a penny's compensa- 
tion. You are wrong. 

Compensation is the very foundation stone of the American 
Way of Life. Whether you love your work or hate it, our system 
absolutely requires that you be paid for it. For example, I 
have a friend named Rex Glebe, a veterinarian by profession, 
who simply adores to worm dogs. I mean you can call him up 
and say, "Hey, Ilex, let's go bowl a few lines," or "Hey, Rex, 
let's go flatten some pennies on the railroad tracks," and he 
will always reply, "No, thanks. I better stay here in case 
somebody wants a" dog wormed." I mean there is not one thing 
in the whole world you can name that Rex likes better than 
worming a dog. But even so, Rex always sends a bill for worm- 
ing your dog because in his wisdom he knows that to do other- 
wise would be to rend, possibly irreparably, the fabric of 
dejnocracy. ^i, 



I W^i^W^SfvMs h tomed! 

It's the" same with me and Marlboro Cigarettes. I think 
Marlboro's flavor represents the pinnacle of the tobacconist's 
art. I think Marlboro's filter represents the pinnacle of the 
filter-maker's art. I think Marlboro's pack and box represent 
the pinnacle of the packager's art. I think Marlboro is a pleas- 
ure and a treasure, and I fairly burst with pride that I have 
been chosen to speak for Marlboro on your campus. All the 
same, I want my money every week. And the makers of 
Marlboro understand this full well. They don't like it, but they 
understand it. 

In the columns which follow this opening installment, I will 
turn the hot white light of truth on the pressing problems of 
campus life— the many and varied dilemmas which beset the 
undergraduate— burning questions like "Should Chaucer class- 
rooms be converted to parking garages?" and "Shoutd proctors 
be given a saliva test?" and "Should foreign exchange students 
be held for ransom?" 

And in these columns, while grappling with the crises that 
vex campus America, I will make occasional brief mention of 
Marlboro Cigarettes. If I do not, tlte makers will not give me 
any money. • ©ie«2 Maxshuiman 

The makers of Marlboro will bring you this uncensored, 
free-style column 26 times throughout the school year. Dur- 
ing this period it is not unlikely that Old Max will step on 
some toes — principally ours — but we think it's all in fun and 
we hope you will too.

A Very Toothsome Tale 

Starting in the spring term 
of 1963 the new Dental Hy- 
giene and new classroom 
buildings will be open for 

During the construction of 
the Dental Hygiene building 
it Vras rumored that some en- 
terprising dental students put 
a time capsule in the founda- 
tion. The capsule was said to 
contain a life size model of 
our beloved Dr. Manor's upper 
and lower teeth, plus a pair 
of bicuspids. Another item 
reported to be in the capsule 
was the last American tooth 
to be stained by Cuban tobac- 
co. The tooth also is supposed 
to have the last cavity caused 
by Cuban sugar. Another in- 
teresting fact about this tooth 
is that it is not white but red. 

In latter part of the Spring, 
dental hygiene service will 
be available free to any brave 
student. The students seek- 
ing this service will be able 
to sit in any one of 32 plush- 
lined chairs. The entire build- 
ing will be air-conditioned. 
The soft chairs, air-condition- 
ing, and pretty girls should 
make extractions almost 

Most students are already 
familiar with the new class- 
room building, located between 
the Science and Administra- 
tion buildings. The men who 
are working on this building 
have constructed clever bar- 
ricades and obstacles to dis- 
courage all but the most hardy 
students. The people who try 
to navigate by the building 
must deftly side-step sand 
traps, wet cement, mud, and 
nasty half-inch thick pieces 
of iron sticking from the foun- 
dations. These pieces of iron 
were left exposed to impale 
any students that trip. As of 
yet only a few students have 
met their ends this way, but 
the contractors expect many

more to be skewered in this 


press service, TJPI (Unorgan- 
ized, Pivnick Idiots), reported 
that a freshman, Lanthanus 
Lead foot, tried to cross 
THROUGH the new classroom 
building. He made it to the 
middle before his feet got 
caught in the fresh cement. 
Needless to say, his fossils 
will make interesting studies 
in several eons. 

The Dental Hygiene build- 
ing is being paid for in part 
by the Kellogg Foundation. 
But despite the rumors circu- 
lating on campus to the con- 
trary, the interior of the build- 
ing will not be decorated in 
corn flakes. Nobody has yet 
denied the rumor that the rest 
rooms will be modeled with 
bran cereal. 

This reporter inspected the 
new Dental building recently. 
The first thing that was no- 
ticed upon entering the build- 
ing was that it was raining 
cement. After I chipped off 
the larger pieces I continued 
on my tour to the sound of 
pleasantly cursing workers. 
Not being a construction ex- 
pert hampered my observa- 
tions. The structure could, 
have been a secret missle 
base (the rockets firing from 
in back of the molars), for all 
I could tell. I tried to reach 
the second story, but the 
building does not have any 
steps. It turned out to be a 
good thing that there were no 
steps, because it is only a 
one story building. Passing a 
cement chute I noted the sign 
"Dental Building. Open for 
limited business. Open your 
mouth and we fill your cavi- 
ties." Next to the chute stood 
a man with an electric quarter- 
inch drill in his hand, smiling 
and whistling obscenely. I 
turned and got the you know 
what out of there. 

Student Scholarships Available 

Approximately one hundred 
scholarships are now avail- 
able for Palm Beach Junior 
College students. The schol- 
arships are of three general 
types; work scholarships or 
assistantships, gifts and 

Work scholarships are in 
payment for part time work 
done by students at the junior 
college. The amount of these 
may vary according to stipula- 
tions by the donor, the type of 
work done, and the holder of 
the scholarship. Amounts,also 
vary from department to de- 
partment according to the 
amount of work needed by the 
department and the funds

Gift scholarships are fully 
given while loans are to be 
paid back by the student. 
Stipulation for payment varies 
with each scholarship; with 
the state nursing and state 
teaching scholarships the 
holder must work one year in 
Florida for each year that he 
holds a scholarship. 

There, are various ways in 
which to obtain a scholarship. 
One may apply directly to ser- 
vice organizations which give 
scholarships, such as Kiwan- 
is, Rotary, or the Chamber of 
Commerce. High school stu- 
dents may apply thru their 
guidance counselor; junior 
college students may apply to 
the Scholarship Committee. 
Applications may be obtained 
from Mrs. Jean Blesh in the 
guidance office. 

To be eligible for a schol- 
arship a student must maintain 
a 2.0 average, he must be a 
full time day student. Priority 
is given to sophomores and 
second semester freshmen, 
and to single students with 
no dependents. 

Gift scholarships are given 
first to those who already hold 
part time jobs. It is advisable 
for students to apply at least

Do you have a clear recol- 
lection of your registration? 
Was your registration one big 
blur? Perhaps your first 
taste of college life was sim- 
ilar to mine. I arrived at the 
college library a quarter of an 
hour early only to find that I 
was late. The first requisite 
for entry was a counciling 
slip. After fumbling through 
various pictures, identifica- 
tions and cards I obtained the 
passport to plateau number 

Here I was met by a gen- 
tleman with a wind velocity 
approaching that of a tropical 
front. He announced in rather 
glowing terms that anyone 
who was taking biology or 
chemistry was to select a two 
hour laboratory. It goes with- 
out saying that nothing could 
top this bulletin. 

After referring to several 
fellow bewildered souls I 
found that the only end was 
to be more and more confused. 
Finally a ray of light showed 
through the fog! A young lady 
sat down at our table with a 
schedule all filled out by her 
counselor. Perhaps if I looked 
at her's I could see how it's 

Before me I beheld some- 
thing similar to a Univac with 
a short circuit. On the manila

rather distorted arrows and

false impression of "free

tribute to my enlightenment. 
However, just sitting there

was not the answer either. 
Not having the faintest idea 
of what I was doing, I jumped 
in head first and began to fill 
out forms. All went well until 
the announcement about 


closed classes. I walked

After standing in all sc 
of long lines and shelling 
the remnants of a much 
pleated cache of colle 
funds I was met at the e 
by Bob Lee, sophomore cli 
president. Mr. Lee was bu 
ing himself as host. His he 
ing duties consisted of in 
dining people who had kno 
each other for years and i

A Presidential Fairy Tale - Modern Style 

by Renny M. Connell 

Once upon a time there was a young man who was elected 
President of the United states by a huge margin. The people 
of the country not thinking of their own selfish wants, elected 
him because they thought that his policies would be best for 
the country as a whole. 

The first problem that confronted the President-elect was 
that of selecting a Secretary of State. "Now, let me see," 
thought the earnest young President, "here is the big, power- 
ful Governor of a Llirge State who helped me get elected And 
here is a Career Diplomat who has never engaged in politics. 
Who should I choose? I think that I shall select the Diplomat 
because he knows much more about foreign affairs than the 
Governor. I am sure that the Governor- will understand." 

When the powerful Governor of the Large State heard that 
the young President had chosen a Diplomat over him he was 
very surprised. "Well," he shrugged, "the Diplomat probably 
knows what is best for the country. I support the decision of 
the President." 

The President had also considered appointing one of his 
Close Relatives to the office of Attorney-General, but he de- 
cided that there were greater legal minds in the country than 
his thirteen year old brother. 

As time went by, the President's legislative program failed 
to get by in the Congress. "I wonder why the Congressmen 
refuse all my programs," said the President, as he bounced 
his young wife on his knee. Suddenly a revelation hit him. 
"I know what the trouble is," he exclaimed, "My legislative 
programs are rotten! Maybe if I put together some good ones 
they will pass." The President tried this and it worked! 

One day the President was having a talk with one of the 
Senators from one of the Southern States of the country. 

"Mr. Senator," began the President tactfully, "did you 
know that some of the citizens in your state are being denied 
their right to vote because of the color of their skin?" 

"The Senator was aghast! "Good heavens," he said, 
breathing heavily, "I never knew any such thing went on in 
my State. 1 shall get to work right away and remedy this 
dreadful situation." And so he did. 

As the days went by the President was faced with many 
crucial decisions: when the Big Steel Companies raised their 
prices, he quietly told them that it was a Bad Thing, and they 
subsequently agreed; he advised his sixteen year old brother 
not to run for the Senate; he allowed even critical newspap- 
ers to be sent to the White House; he reduced taxes by re- 
ducing expenditures and Federal employees; he straightened 
out the farm program; he helped the sovereign States to im- 
prove education; he enforced the Monroe Doctrine by ousting 
the Red Ogre to the south; he withdrew aid from Red coun- 
tries so that they would not purchase more bullets to kill our 
soldiers with; he took another look at foreign aid; and, did 
many more things. 

At the end of the young President's first term everyone 
was back to work, school teachers were paid as much as 
movie stars, Congressmen did not have their Close Relatives 
on the payroll, religious and racial bigotry was dead, and 
business was booming. So great was the President's popular- 
ity that he was supported for a second term by both Political 

But lo and behold, the President decided not ten run for a 
second term. "I think," he said, "that I have been in power 
long enough. I think that s one other fine gentleman should 
now be elected, perhaps someone from the Other Party, for a 

So the President left office dearly beloved by all the 
people. He retired to his moderate home and lived a quiet 
life for the rest of his days in the great country which he 
served so well.

Phi Rho Pi Holds 
Party For Gunsmoke 

Florida Alpha Alpha alum- 
ni chapter of Phi Rho Pi, 
Palm Beach Junior College, 
held a "Gunsmoke Party" on 
the evening of September 15 
at the George- Washington Ho- 
tel in honor of alumnus Burt 
Reynolds, who is debuting in 
the CPS show this season. 

Kent Schroeder, president, 
showed slides of Burt in 
scenes from his first show in 
the Gunsmoke series and read 
greetings from Burt to the 
chapter. Burt is a member of 
alumni chapter. 

Color slides of past dra- 
matic productions of the 
PBJC Players were also 
shown. Scenes from "Streetcar 
Named Desire", ''The Many 
Loves of William Shake- 
speare", "Medea" and "John- 
ny Belinda", were among the 
slides shown. 

At 10 p.m. the members 
viewed the new Gunsmoke 
show in the fall series and 
enjoyed dessert and coffee.

Philo Welcomes 
At Co-Ed Tea 

Immediately following the 
orientation procedures, on 
August 23 and 24, the annual 
Co-Ed Tea was given through 
the planning of Philo mem- 
bers. Representatives of each 
of the women's social clubs 
were present to welcome the 
incoming freshmen women. 
Miss Elizabeth Tegiacchi, 
advisor of Co-Ed was also 
present to give assistance. 

Linda Parrish and Dayna 
Shope represented the Philo 
social club at the Freshmen 
Splash party, September 7. 

A dance held September 8 
at the Lake Worth Casino was 
jointly sponsored by Philo 
and Phi Da Di. The dance 
was given to honor the incom- 
ing freshmen and returning 
sophomores. Music was fur- 
nished by the Galaxies and 
the R-Dell.s from 8-12 p.m. 

Philo had several work 
projects over the summer to 
raise money for the 19S2-£3 
school year. 

Plans are now being made 
for the rush oarties. 

One of the many services 
that new freshmen should 
look into is the Student Place- 
ment Service. "Its purpose" 
says Mrs. Jean Blesh, who 
handles the service, "is to 
give students a chance to 
earn extra money to help pay 
college ex jenses and give 
them practical experience." 

Anyone wanting a full or 
part-time job can check the 
bulletin board in the Student 
Personnel Office. It lists the 
employer, his address, the 
type of work and pay. 

Mrs. Blesh adds that, "stu- 
dents who need to work should 
bear their school load in mind 
and plan their work hours 
accordingly." She also asks 
all students who receive jobs 

through the notices on the 
board to notify her, so that 
she can post new ones. 

Most employers are look- 
ing for certain traits in their 
student workers. As Mr. Earl 
Robblns, manager of the 
school cafeteria put it, "I ex- 
pect the same cooperation 
out of my student employees' 
as of my regulars." He re- 
cently hired four students, 
two men and two women, for 
afternoon work at the cafeter- 

Mr. J. Freeman, Freeman's 
Shoe Center, 705 Lake Ave- 
nue, Lake Worth, is currently 
looking for a J.C. student to 
sell shoes and run stock in 
his store. The student can 
choose his hours. Experience 

will be helpful but is not nec- 

"We (he and his wife) will 
be glad to train him. All he 
needs is a will to work and 
learn. I'll make the hours to 
fit the student," he further 
adds. He offers the J.C. stu- 
dent a chance to work in his 
store because, "When I went 
to college, it was tough get- 
ting a job, so now I want to 
give deserving students the 
chance that I didn't get." He 
has been giving jobs in his 
store to J.C. students for over 
seven years. 

These are just a few traits 
that an employer seeks in his 
student worker. 

Check the bulletin board 
for jobs that are available. 

College Education For Your Social and Academic Future 

College, whether a junior 
college as located here in 
Palm Beach County or a larg- 
er University offering a full 
four year program, can be and 
should serve as a social as 
well as an academic stepping 
stoneto every person's future. 

The academic program of- 
fered at Palm Beach Junior 
College can greatly aid and 
enhance the future earning 
power of each individual who 
properly applies himself. Ed- 
ucational progress perhaps 
can be described as the one, 
most powerful asset that can 
be attained by American youth 
today. This idea is being 
stressed ever more increas- 
ingly throu-gh both high 
schools and colleges, the 
world over. 

But a phase of education 
that can be provided in any 
college if the opportunities 
are capitalized upon. By so- 
cial education I certainly am 
not referring to the "Tanked 
Up Friday Nights" or the 
"Lost Weekends" which seem 
to foolishly popular through- 
out the campuses today, but 
the real social education in 
participating in school- 
planned functions. 

Palm Beach Junior Col- 
lege offers a wide variety of 
intramural sports with a phase 
of this program planned for 
every student's individual 
ability, that can be engaged 
in by any student - WITHOUT 

by Robert Rout 
COST. These sports not only 
enable the individual to learn 
true sportsmanship but pro- 
vice a good stiff competitive 

Palm Beach Junior Col- 
lege also offers a series of 
Barbeques, pool parties, and 
dances, once again the cost 
being absorbed in the student 
activity fee. Each of these 
functions provides a complete 
program of sports and enter- 
tainment with a great oppor- 
tunity to meet and make new 

Four mens and three wo- 
mens social clubs also help 
advance the social education 
available on campus. Each 
organization equally well 
makes every pledge a better 
and more well rounded stu- 
dent. Social clubs tradition- 
ally have a keen interest in 
the campus itself, thus pass- 
ingthis feeling on to its mem- 
bers, who in turn can pass it 
on to others. Keep in mind 
that experience obtained in 
any way, shape or form can 
add personality even where 
none exists. 

Last but certainly not 
least are the church and civ- 
ic groups of which there is a 
great number on campus. 
Quite naturally no one need 
explain the advantages of the 
church or civic groups. The 
church groups tend to draw 
persons of particular beliefs 
together, each individual be- 
ing able to aid the other. Civ- 

ic groups are ever-powerful 
organizations formed by stu- 
dents who wish to see good 
done to others and work done 
where it will serve the best 

Other organizations on 
campus will serve both pur- 
poses, the social and the ac- 
ademic education. Each of 
these organizations will cer- 
tainly tend to improve one's 
social as well as scholastic 
ability and train him to be a 
more well-rounded student. 

Each and every student 
owes it to himself to inquire 
about the various activities 
available on campus. But in 
any event be a member, not 
just an attendant of Palm 
Beach Junior College and 
your abilities and aims as a 
result will be much higher. 
Each individual in life must 
learn to associate and work 
with others no matter what 
kind of work the future may 
hold in store. This practical 
side of education is here at 
your disposal, make use of it. 

As you now walk down the 
halls at Palm Beach Junior 
College how many students 
besides the associates you 
know from high school stop 
and speak. By joining organ- 
izations that will be to your 
social as well as academic 
benefit it will seem so pleas- 
ant to have smiling new faces 
pause in- the halls and say hi

For a more efficient pro- 
gram, Mr. Robins has em- 
ployed a much larger staff, 
however at the present time 
he does not need any more 
student help. This added 
help, will cater to the appe- 
tites of the* 700 students that 
come for lunch between 11 
and 2 p.m. 

Steve Jones, a student at 
the junior college thinks that 
the service and variety is 
better and more suited to the 
appetite of the student. 

Marshall Burton likes the 
larger variety of sandwiches 
and is looking forward to the

Peace Corps 
A Great Chance 

Dr. Samuel Bottosto, chair- 
man of Social Science De- 
partment has hailed the Peace 
Corps as one of the continu- 
ing achievements of our 
present administration. He is 
acting as unofficial liason 
officer between the Peace 
Corps and Palm Beach Junior 
College and feels that the 
work in the Peace Corps is 
invaluable wealth of experi- 
ence for those who volunteer 
and qualify. It is an oppor- 
tunity for young men and 
women to serve their country 
while traveling and gaining 
knowledge . 

In the depressed rural 
areas of our South American 
neighbors, Peace Corps vol- 
unteers are carrying on dedi- 
cated work in the fields of 
agriculture t education, eco- 
nomics, public health, en- 
gineering, science, and eco- 
nomic and social stability. 

Volunteers receive three 
months training at various 
universities in the United 
States and cover the culture 
policies and people of the 
host country, United States 
history, institutions, values 
and international relations. 

Created by an executive 
order on March 1, 1962, with 
Sargeant Shriver as director, 
the Peace Corps has become 
a diplomatic success 
strengthening relations be- 
tween the United States and 
the rest of the Free World. 

Many countries have re- 
quested more volunteers than 
the Peace Corps have been 
able to supply. The average

A snap of a football, a

these are some familiar signs 
from the intramural sports 

Each year the members of 
the P.B.J.C. student body 
participate in ever increasing 
numbers in the excellent in-

Dollars For 
Scholars is For You 

The Palm Beach Junior 
College Alumni Association 
has once more taken "Dollars 
for Scholars" as its project 
for the school year, announc- 
ed faculty advisor, Dean Paul 
J. Glynn. 

"Dollars for Scholars" is 
a fund raising drive to finance 
the school's work assistant- 
ship program. Last year a 
total of $841 was raised by 
the drive. 

Starting in November, the 
Alumni Association will 
sponsor a direct mailing of

than last year's effort. 

out to lick the world, adds 
more color and more interest 
to the intramural sports sea- 
son as these groups pit them- 
selves against one another in 
friendly grudge competition. 

Many students sign up for 
intramurals, but they all have 
one thing in common - their 
desire for competition, com- 
petition that lends itself well 
to their physical attributes, 
competition that challenges 
their enjoyable, spirited 
sports activities. 

The self-satisfaction and 
benefit from athletics upon 
ones spirit, heart, and mind 
can hardly be estimated. 
Whatever the beneficial ef- 
fects, I hope to see you on 
the field of competition 
whether it be in the gymna- 
sium, in a swimming pool or 
on the football field. 


Tennis Tourney 
Posed For Woman 

All women interested in 
tennis singles or doubles 
should sign up in gym office 
2 before 10 a.m., Thursday, 
Oct. 18. 

Entrants will participate 
in an elimination type tourney 
beginning Monday, October 
22. The schedule will be 
posted in gym office 1. 
Matches will consist of the 
best 2 out of 3 sets and may 
be played at a court of your 
choice off campus. 

Scoresheets can be ob- 
tained in gym office 2. These 
sheets must be signed by the 
participants and turned in the 
next school day following the 
match. Players will officiate 
their own matches. 

Your Team Roster 
Is Waiting For You 

To be eligible to represent 
an organization or team, a 
player must be entitled to the 
name or be affiliated with the 
group which he represents. 
Independent teams with 
names of particular signifi- 
cance may select their mem- 
bers from any students. 

Actives and legally pro- 
cessed pledges are eligible 
to participate for a social 
club or recognized school 

A player who has been 
participating on a team which 
is eliminated from competi- 
tion will not be eligible to 
compete for another team in 
that sport. 

Unless otherwise speci- 
fied, team squad rosters must 
be submitted prior to the first 

official contest in a sport. 
No alteration can be made to 
the roster without the ap- 
proval of a staff member. The 
team official roster will be 
frozen -on a specified date, 
and no alterations can be 
made without the special rul- 
ing of the intramural director. 
Any player that is not cleared 
with a staff member is de- 
clared ineligible. If a play- 
er's name appears on two or 
more lists, the player must 
decide for himself which team 
he wishes to represent. 

Responsibility for ascer- 
taining the eligibility of par- 
ticipants rests with the man- 
agers of teams and not with 
the Intramural section, with 
the exception of students 
with medical waivers or 
Activity Probation.

Nursingls RapidlyGrowing Career 

To take in stride our rapid 
advancements in the fields of 
science andmedicine, today's 
nurses have become highly 
diversified and better educa- 

They have made nursing a 
highly personalized and 
acutely important profession 
to the individual, his society 
and his world. Through their 
extensive education and prac- 
tical experience, they are 
firmly equipped to meet and 
cope with the situations, pro- 
blems and complexities that 
develop continually in man's 
incessant fight against injury 
and disease.. This knowledge 
and responsibility will gener- 
ate the confidence that is 
essential to the welfare of 
the patient. 

Miss Lillian M. Smiley, 
Chairman of the PBJC Nurs- 
ing Department, has outlined 
the curriculum as one de- 
signed to teach the care of 
the sick and the rules of good 
citizenship. Throughout the 

nursing program the student 
is constantly confronted with 
some of the individual pro- 
blems that may later arise. 

The first semester of study 
is primarily concerned with 
the fundamentals of nursing. 
It orientates the beginning 
student both to the field of 
nursing and to the opportuni- 
ties of a general education. 

The second semester they 
are further acquainted with 
the problems of the sick adult 
and the chronically ill in med- 
ical and surgical nursing. Dur- 
ing the summer they work 
with the patients at the tuber- 
culosis hospital in Lantana. 

This provides the oppor- 
tunity for them to apply their 
learning to practical exper- 
ience. They are introduced to 
the concepts of family life, 
maternal and child care. 
These last months are pri- 
marily devoted toward special- 
ization in a field of study. 

For the graduates of this 
program await numerous job

Annual Blood Drive 

by Marjorie Van Steenburg 
Beachcomber Staff 

This is an appeal to you, the students of Palm Beach Ju- 
nior College to donate your blood. The tentative date set for 
the blood drive at Palm Beach Junior College, sponsored by 
Thi Del social club, is October 17, 1962. 

Each semester students of Palm Beach Junior give their 
blood which is put into the West Palm Beach blood bank and 
designated for use by Junior College students and teachers of 
the community. 

The average amount of blood collected is 60-80 pints; each 
student gives one pint. Considering that we have 2000 stu- 
dents this is not a percentage to be proud of. 

Qualified nurses will be on hand to supervise the opera- 
tion. Those students who succeed in giving blood will wear 
signs stating "I Gave". Those who cannot give due to past 
disease or being underweight may wear signs of "I Tried". 

It is unfortunate that one never realizes just how much 
blood is needed until his life or that of a loved one is at stake. 

Won't you give your blood on October 17?

College Curriculum 
Adds Dental Hygiene 

The new dental hygiene 
program is rapidly becoming 
a reality with forty students 
enrolled in the first class. 

Temporary offices are lo- 
cated upstairs in the library. 
It is expected that the one- 
story, air-conditioned build- 
ing now in progress will be 
completed by the second se- 
mester. The operatory will 
contain 32 dental units with 
motor driven chairs and four 
x-ray units. 

In addition there will be 
demonstrations, operatory, 
laboratory, classroom and ad- 
ministration offices. Future 
plans call for the develop- 
ment of related curricula and 
building expansion.

they must have graduated from 
the upper half of their high 
school class, must present a

1963) and have a personal 
interview with the Chairman 
of the Department of Dental 

In addition to the required 
tuition and fees; books, uni- 
forms, instruments, etc. for 
the first year will cost about 
?270.00. The second year 
will only be about $70.00. 
Students enrolled in this 
course receive an AS degree 
upon graduation. In order to 
practice the profession of 
Dental Hygiene, the graduate, 
dental hygienist must secure 
a license from the State 
Board of Dental Examiners

Frosh Elections Friday 

Palm Beach Junior College and South Side Kiwanis plan 
to provide vocational information to the student body in those 
professions and occupations of interest as a means to aid 
students in selecting and preparing for a career. 

Mr. Bill Dennis, chairman of the Vocational Guidance Com- 
mittee of South Side Kiwanis; Bob Moss, counselor PBJC; 
and Al Zalla, committee's school consultant coordinator make 
plans, in above picture, to conduct a survey of the student 
body to secure an indication of career interests. 

The Kiwanis hope to bring several professional men and 
women to give first-hand information concerning various voca- 
tions. As a result of this program, many valuable years may 
be saved by understanding one's interests as related to pos- 
sible opportunities and their requirements.

Dollars for Scholars 
Plans Mailing List 

"Dollars for Scholars" 
will again be the watchword 
when the Palm Beach Junior 
College Alumni Association 
starts its 1962 campaign, 
Monday, November 12. 

This year's campaign, 
said Dean Paul J. Glynn, fac- 
ulty advisor to the Alumni 
Association, will consist of, 
a direct mailing of five to ten 
thousand envelopes to the 
homes of alumni, faculty mem- 
bers, students and various 
professional people. 

Students may help in ob- 
taining the funds which fi- 
nance the work assistantship 
program by collecting addi- 
tional addresses of any groups 
or individuals whom they 
think may contribute to the 
fund, and presenting them to 
the secretary in the Student 
Personnel Office. 

Assistance is also needed 
in the processing and address- 
ing of the envelopes to be 
mailed. Students wishing to 
aid in this capacity should 
report to Dean Glynn and so 

"Students should be re- 
minded," said Dean Glynn, 
"that when they are aiding 
Dollars for Scholars, they are 
aiding themselves, for they 
may receive benefit from this 
campaign by having a work 
scholarship here on campus 
in the future."

American voters have, in the past been known to choose a 
man who lives down the street and around the corner from 
them tor office, rather than one who, as the saying goes "is 
against communism, for motherhood and against sin." This 
holds true to some extent for student voters. 

Students who are supposedly being taught to think before 
voting, brashly go ahead and vote for a person because he 
(or she) came from their high school. 

As Freshman Class elections take place Friday, this will 
be an all too evident fact. Freshmen do not, in some cases 
remember that this person was a "no-good Joe or party boy" 
in high school as they vote for him at JC. He is now a sole, 
familiar face in a sea of strangers. 

Campaign speeches are given to enable the student voter 
to vote wisely as well as to acquaint him with the candidates. 
Each and every one of you have the opportunity to hear all the 
candidates as they speak in the Student Lounge on Wednesday. 

After hearing the candidates-then make your decisions as 
to how to vote. Don't make your decisions according to high 
school loyalty, a loyalty which is highly misplaced in college. 
High school loyalty should have been left behind in June, to 
be refound only at football games. 

Remember, freshmen, as you start to vote Friday, the peo- 
ple you are electing have a great responsibility to fulfill. 
Elect people that you honestly feel are equal to the job re- 
quired of them. 

It is not wrong to vote against an alumnus of your high 
school if you think him incapable of the job. It is a wrong, 
however, to elect an incapable person to office just because 
"you knew him when". 

Remember then on Friday, THINK before you vote, and do

PBJC Student Lounge Is Recipe for Fun 

by Chris Tenne 
'Comber Feature Editor 

Follow the ringing laugh- 
ter, animated chatter and 
hurried footsteps, and you 
will arrive at the haven of 
PBJC, the student lounge. 

The lounge also provides 
the opportunity for serious, 
graduate study in many fields. 
Experiments have been con- 
ducted as to the possibility 
of seating more than two stu- 
dents in one chair, success- 
fully worming into the lunch 
line ahead of ten frantic peo- 
ple, and meditating world 
conditions to the beat of 
"Alley Cat." 

Perhaps the greatest chal- 
lenge for the enterprising stu- 
dent is leaving the lounge at 
the beginning of the morning 
break. He finds he is throt- 
tled, rebuffed, and stepped on 
until he finally retreats to 
await the bell when he is 
swept along with the surging 
crowd out into the "open 
spaces" of the campus. 

Here at last teacher and 
student are set on equal 
ground, each sparring for a 
secure foothold in front of the 
sandwich counter. 

The problem of "how to 
make friends and influence 
people" is readily solved by 
spilling hot coffee on the 
white-shirted elbow sticking 
in your ribs or hastily knock- 
ing over the neatly stacked 
books on the corner table. It 
is one of the few spots on 
campus where you can yell 
"Carole" and be greeted by 
50 people galloping in your 

Participation in lounge in- 
tramurals ranks high with ice- 
chewing, sandwich-stealing 
and chair-straddling among 
the most popular. 

Native criers range from 
the scarcely audible grunt of 
the engrossed daydreamer to 
the frantic scream of the 
freshman girl demurely at- 
tracting the attention of "Mr. 
Flag-Tag-Football" strutting 
out the door. 

The student lounge has 
become one of the most basic 
and essential institutions of 
our campus. The fun, experi- 
ences, and friends found here 
will be remembered through- 
out life.

Keep Up with Joneses- 
Have Biggest TV Set 

by Bob Bennett 
Beachcomber Columnist 

We have all, at one time or 
another, been guilty of trying 
to "keep up with the Jones- 
es." This sort of rivalry has 
now spread to that grand and 
glorious American institution 

A good many years ago 
when a television set was a 
rarity rather than a necessity, 
the choice offered to the 
viewer was rather narrow. The 
next step in the cycle of the 
eye-strain machine was a 
wide selection of drama, 
comedy, music and that new- 
est of adult idols-Bullwinkle. 
Speaking of adult idols, the 
same blight that hit the film 
industry has hit television. 
That blight is the adult theme. 
It all began with "Playhouse 
90". Just stop to think about 
it. Nowhere else in the world 
could a family sit back and be 
entertained by ninety minutes 
of sheer, un-adulterated tripe! 

Now we are faced with a 
new form of this blight. It is 
the adult western. Take the 
multi-award winner, "Gun- 
smoke". The first step toward 
making an adult western out 
of a family show is to put it 
on after ten o'clock. The pur- 
pose of this is to let the 
kiddies think they are missing 
something by not raising dad- 
dy's hairline a bit. Dad 
watches it just to show who's 
boss. Consequently, the show 
has been on the air for ten 

The western craze has ta- 
pered off and is now in an 
eclipse — if the sun has not 
set on it completely. We are 
now offered a wide selection 
of doctors, doctors, or more 
doctors. (Heads up, pre-med 
students, take several drama 
courses, too.) These doctors 
range all the way from the 
surly, grouchy type to the 
sincere and dedicated type. 
In the 1963 season something 
new has been added so- that 
viewers may diagnose their 
psychological difficulties, 
too. This is all wrapped up in 
a not too tidy package called 
the "Eleventh Hour". 

Naturally, wherever you 
find doctors you will find 
nurses. In this case you'll 
find the nurses on another 

For the more high minded 
there are such intellectual 
stimuli as "Bullwinkle", 
"Mister McGoo", and "The 
Flintstones". Polls made of 
viewers have shown that more 
adults and teens watch these 
programs than do children 
under twelve. 

It would seem that in the 
planning of the programs for 

PBJC Sweatshirts 
To be Sold 

The College Women's Club, 
composed of women, faculty 
members and the wives of 
faculty members, will again

ers in the bookstore. 

Students are advised to 
watch the bulletin boards for 
announcements concerning 
dates and time of sales. 

Four types will be sold: 
the fleece-lined cardigan, the 
plebe ' T-shirt, the raglan 
sweat shirt, and the shawl- 
collar sweat shirt. Prices 
range from $1.65 to $2.95. 

A Point of View 

An Eye for An Eye 
- Right or Wrong 

by Renny M. Connell 
Beachcomber Columnist 

Capital punishment is one of humanity's greatest contini; 
ing shames. It was invented by the non-thinking and is cor 
tinued by the non-thinking. It should be an abomination t 
every professing Christian. 

How many of you think that Jesus Christ, who taught mere 
and understanding rather than hatred and bloodshed, woul 
condone capital punishment? It is a blight on the earth tha 
does not seem very likely to disappear in the near future 

The advocates of the death penalty say that the use of ] 
deters criminals. This is so much nonsense. If this were tru 
then the states which employ it should be relatively free c 
crime and the states that do not should be overrun with crim< 
The opposite is true. Michigan, which abolished the deat 
penalty years ago, has one of the lowest capital crime rates i 
the nation. Georgia, with fourteen capital crimes on its law 
books, has the highest rate in the United States. 

Capital punishment is uneven. Its victims are usually th 
poor, the uneducated, and members of minority groups. Th 
rich can afford fine lawyers and lengthy litigation, while th 
poor usually have to make court appointees do. You don't hav 
to have a crystal ball to guess the outcome. 

The average pro-capital punishment individual, when aske 
about the fate of a condemned criminal will say, "Let's gU 
him the mercy he gave his victim. The dirty scum doesn 
deserve to live." 

Who in God's name gave these blind people the right t 
decide who should live and who should not? Since the begii 
ning of time, our world has been one long slaughterhouse, an 
it will continue to be as long as misguided individuals thin 
they have the right, either singly or collectively, to tak 
another life. As for the mercy comment, I quote Clarence Da 
row: "...if the community in which I live isn't kinder and moi 
humane than (these murderers), then I am sorry that 1 hav 
livedl so long." 

I think that it would be true justice to have every perse 
who believes in capital punishment to have a part in executii 
every condemned criminal. They talk big, let's see if thf 
have the guts to pull the switch themselves and know th; 
they have knowlingly snuffed out the life of a fellow hums 


When you clear away all the clutter surrounding the deal 
penalty, do you know what you find? Not deterrance. Not ju; 
tice. Not righteousness. You find nothing but cheap reveng' 
The old law of "an eye for an eye" still lives in the sma 
brains and hard hearts of men. And until people start doii 
some thinking or taking some of the teachings of their religioi 
leaders seriously, the mossy, hoary law will remain to cur: 
all the future generations of humanity.

Election Time Brings Out Perenial Office 
Seeker -for the Fourth Straight Year 

by Jack Dorn 
Beachcomber Staff 

With the class elections 
coming up soon, the candi- 
dates for class officers have 
already begun preparing for 
the campaign. 

This reporter was fortunate 
enough to gain an interview 
with Snell "Sneaky" Snerd, a 
fourth year freshman. Snell 
intends to be running for 
freshman class vice presi- 
dent, as he has been running 
in past years. He has yet to 
pull more than 0.2% of the 
vote. This year Snell intends 
to live up to his nickname, 
which he earned during past 
campaigns, with his usual 
smear tactics. 

Snell intends to use sex 
for the first, and most likely 
last, time in a class election. 
Snerd has many willing and 
helpful campaigners who will 
help him in this respect. 

A willing and helpful Snerd 

Unfortunately, sex does 
little to bring in the female 
vote. Snerd expects that he 
will have to campaign active- 
ly at rallies for the women's

Several years ago Snell 
was the innovater of rest room 
campaign posters. Who can 
forget such tricky slogans as 
"If you don't like the smell, 
vote for Snell" and "If the 
toilets are leaky, vote for 
Sneaky." Snell says to watch 
for tricky and unusually 
placed posters again this

Snell believes he is well 
qualified for the job he is 
seeking. He is a member of 
the Hum De Dum fraternity 
and the Ku Klux Klan. Snerd 
is also an active member of 
the Youth for Mohammed club 
and the All for Allah league. 

Snell has a tight, well 
knit, campaign organization. 
This group thought up the 
clever slogan "Swallow your 
integrity and vote for Sneaky. ' '

Men's Social Club Rush Provides 
For a Variety of Experiences 

The official, men's social 
club rush was ushered in with 
a smoker at Dreher Park on 
Friday evening, September 21, 
at 7:30 p.m. It was followed 
by a dance at the American 
Legion Hall in Lake Worth 
withthe women's social clubs 
and rushees. Music for danc- 
ing was provided by the R- 
Dells, and the heavy rain did 
not seem to dampen the high 
spirits of all those attending. 

The following Sunday af- 
ternoon, 65 rushees were in- 
vited to the informal rush of 
Tri Kappa Lambda which 
featured a water skiing party 
and barbecue at Boynton Is- 
land. Entertainment was pro- 
vided by the rushees partici- 
pating in folk singing and the 

Rushees were invited to

was provided by local talent. 

The last, informal rush 
was given on Saturday even- 
ing at the home of Gay Hoover 
in Boca Raton. This was a 
joint venture by Phi Da Di 
and Philo. This party, which 
got off to an early start and 
continued until midnight, was 
attended by 55 men and 70 
women. The rushees were 
treated to a Bar-B-Que chick- 
en buffet with "all the trim- 
mings," dancing and moon- 
light swimming in Miss 
Hoover's heated pool. 

There was group singing 
accompanied by Jim Humph- 
rey and his electric guitar. 
Also in attendance at the 
rush were Charles Sutherland, 
faculty sponsor, of Phi Da 
Di, and his wife. Watson B. 
Duncan, III, honorary member 
of Phi Da Di, could not attend 
as he was hosting at a "Gun-

In the Spotlight 

Josh Crane - A Man 

Of Many Varied Talents 

Hidden away in the cata- 
comb of offices in the inter- 
ior of the Junior College 
auditorium is the office of 
Josh (not Joshua, unless you 
want to be his enemy) Crane. 
To get to his office literally 
requires a roadmap. 

During the journey, one 
may be fortunate enough to 
accidentally walk upon the 
stage during a play in which 
a young lady is in the last 
rites of dying; or if one takes 
a left turn beyond the second 
watercooler instead of a right, 
he may walk innocently into 
a speech class and incur the 
vehement anger of the teacher. 
But finally the intrepid 
reporter (we may compare him 
to Stanley in Darkest Africa) 
finds Mr. Crane's office (Dr. 
Livingston's hut) and enters 
it. Here he finds the professor 
of speech and drama busily 
at work with Mr. Leahy, his 
erstwhile colleague. They 
have worked together at JC for 
the past seven years, and 
four years before that at Lake 
Worth High School. 

Mr. Crane was born in Bos- 
n, the son of a pioneer 
/lator and co-owner of Bos- 
n's first airport. 
After his father's death, 
his mother married a Lake 
Worth man and moved down 
here. He has four half-bro- 
thers, one of whom, Cameron 
Boynton, is currently attend- 
ing JC. Living in Lake Worth 
since 1942, Mr. Crane grad- 
uated from Lake Worth High 
in 1950, where he first be- 
came interested in speech 
and drama. He became a lic- 
ensed Baptist minister in his 
early teens and "used to 
preach Hellfire and brimstone 
at country churches in South 
Florida". He was also presi- 
dent of his graduating class 
at Lake Worth. 

The summer after he grad- 
uated, he went to the Cape 
Cod School for Acting and did 
summer stock there. He went 
to undergraduate school at 
Guilford College, Greensboro, 
North Carolina working his 
way through school by writing 
for the Greensboro Daily

News. He also wrote a column 
on current events for his 
school paper called Josh'n 
'along. After graduation, he 
returned to Lake Worth High 
to teach English. He had a 
hard time for a while because 
"some of .my former teachers 
couldn't get used to the fact 
that I was now teaching". In 
1957, he and Mr. Leahy came 
to JC to teach drama and 
speech. He also took over the 
job of coach and sponsor of 
the debate team. 

In 1957, he married Norma 
Jean Scott, a Palm Beach 
Public School home econo- 
mics teacher. They have three 
children: Scott Alexander, 3, 
Cameron George, 2, and Alli- 
son Ann made her stage debut 
at 6 months in the college 
production of "Johnny Belin- 
da", last spring. 

To further keep him busy, 
Mr. Crane was recently made 
television coordinator for JC, 
and he thoroughly likes his 
new work for "I've found this 
business of producing a show, 
one of the most exciting and 
satisfying activities I've ever 
been engaged in." 

Before he came to JC, he 
went to the University of 
Florida during six summers 
for his M.A. degree in Speech. 
His two oldest children were 
born in Gainesville. The first 
year he taught at the college, 
he wrote and directed his own 
version of Joan of Arc. He is 
currently president of the 
Florida Speech Association. 
As to his future plans, he 
wants to stay right here. He 
likes the area and is com- 
pletely sold on JC, In fact, 
"if you want to get me mad 
or get an F in speech, just 
call JC a glorified high 
school!" He hopes in the 
near future to write some 
three act plays, possibly for 

And how do his students 
like him? I think that ques- 
tion can be answered by read- 
ing the bronze plaque over 
his filing cabinet. 

It says "Presented to Josh 
Crane for nothing. We love 
ya Josh, from the sexiest 
speech class that ever wuz. 
June 5, 1962." And as Mary 
Nemec, one of his speech 
students puts it "He con- 
ducts his class informally, 
and makes himself feel like 
one of you." 

Well after the interview, I 
proceeded to leave the way I 
came in, but Mr. Crane in- 
formed me that the door was 
closed because a speech 
class had just started, so he 
provided me with a guide to

escort me out by another way. 
We wound our way through 
props and around lights, then 
past the play where the her- 
oine was still in the process 
of dying. We proceeded up a 
winding staircase and through 
an iron door into the rear of 
the Galleon office, passed a 
busy Mr. Piatt and finally into 
broad daylight. I thanked my 
guide, who then returned to 
the dark abyss. It was an ad- 
venture well-worth recalling.

cance of the title "Look 
Homeward, Angel", the Pul- 
itzer Prize play by Ketti 
Frings adapted from the Tho- 
mas Wolfe novel and now in 
rehearsal for the opening pro- 
duction by the Palm Beach 
Junior College Players under 
the direction of Prank Leahy. 

The angel of the title is a 
statue of Carrara marble, 
carved by an unknown artist. 
For years, W.O. Gant, father 
of the play's central charac- 
ter, youthful Eugene Gant, 
has tried to copy her in his 
stonecutting yard, hoping to 
fulfill his yearning and striv- 
ing for beauty, but without 
success. Thus the angel re- 
presents both the strivings 
and frustrations of the artist 
in his search for expression. 

It is also a symbol of the 
young man in the play and 
for Thomas Wolfe himself, 
who took the name of Eugene 

Phi Theta Kappa Plans 
For Spring Convention 

The Delta Omicron Chap- 
ter of Phi Theta Kappa has 
recently launched a year of 
full activity on the Palm 
Beach Junior College campus, 
to be culminated in hosting a 
national convention. 

"The first concern of the 
chapter," said president Bob 
Harris, "is to initiate mem- 
bers, who for various reasons 
did not participate in the June 

The time of this initiation 
will be announced at a later 
date. It can occur, Bob com- 
mented, only when all of the 
potential members have paid 
their national dues. 

"This is a requirement 
set by the national organiza- • 
tion and not by our chapter," 
declared Miss Edith Easter- 
ling, sponsor. 

Tapping of new members, 
always a concern of Phi Theta 
is scheduled to occur in ap- 
proximately one month. 

Overshadowing all other 
activities planned by the 

Kappas this year is the N 
tional Phi Theta Kappa Cc 
vention, of which the camp 
chapter is sole sponsor. 

This convention, to 
held in the last part of Mar 
or the first part of April, w 
draw delegates from juni 
colleges throughout the Ui 
ted States. 

The Deauville Hotel, Mia 
Beach, is slated to be cc 
vention headquarters. 

Miss Easterling, in £ 
nouncing the hotel choic 
commented, "In planning c 
convention activities, we w 
keep in mind the many, ma 
opportunities Miami Bea 
has to offer visitors and I 
to plan our meetings in ore 
to take advantage of all tl 
is offered." 

In order to finance the :

Girls Rush the Campus and Wade Thru Parti

Armed with name tag, quiv-

heart, the rushee trots the 
campus making friends and 
meeting people every minute 
of her busy day. 

But it did not all start

are people locked together by 
unyielding bonds, split apart 
by violent antagonisms. 

They experience melan- 
choly and mirth, greed and 
generosity, hate and love — 
they are forever apart and yet 
forever together. In them there 
is sensuality, superstition 
and meanness, but also poetic 
idealism and an engulfing

Phi Da Di Triumphs over tkl; 28 - 18 Misfits Win Second Straight Game 

Intramural Flag-Tag foot- 
ball got a running start Mon- 

.. day, September 24, with Phi 
Da Di defeating TKL 28-18. 
TKL, playing with only five 
men, deadlocked the score six 

■ all at the end of the first half. 
Phi Da Di, also handicapped 
with two men, Bill Green and 
Mike Wheeler, playing with 
pulled leg muscles scored 
first in the second half. 

Marvin Brigraan passed to 

' Rusty Tinsley for a touch- 
down. A two point conversion 
was scored on a pass from 
Brigman to Mike Wheeler. Phi 

;Da Di kicked off and Bill 

i Green intercepted a pass. 

iMike Wheeler promptly scored 

Ion a 16 yard run and made the 

.score 20-6. The try for the two 

: point pass play failed. 

TKL took the kickoff and 
marched downfield for their 
second touchdown. Bill Net- 
ties caught a pass from Chris 

I Chiodo to pull within eight 
points of Phi Da Di. As Phi 
Da Di tried to move the ball 
upfield, Chris Chiodo alertly 
intercepted an attempted lat- 
eral from Rusty Tinsley and 
ran the ball all the way for 
TKL's third touchdown. 

TKL failed to mak^ good 

the extra point, but had now 
come within two points of Phi 
Da Di, but time was running 
out. With four minutes left to 
play and Phi Da Di on the 30 
yard line, Mike Wheeler again 
broke into open field and a 
touchdown appeared certain. 
However, after jarring through 
two defensive players his flag 
had been pulled loose but not 
off. With no one near him his 
flag fell off and stopped the 
play on the eight yard line. 
Rusty Tinsley now made up 
for his earlier lateral and ran 
the ball over to score Phi Da 
Di's 26th point. 

With less than two minutes 
left to play and the score 26- 
18, there was still the possi- 
bility of TKL scoring and ty- 
ing the score with a two point 
conversion. At knowing this, 
Brigman wisely took the snap 
from Clark Hammeal and did 
not chance a pass play. He 
kept the ball and scored for 
the two insurance points that 
made the score 28-18. A ten 
point lead with time and the 
score against them TKL could 
not move the ball as the game 
came to an end with Phi Da 
Di victorious in its first intra- 
mural game of the year.

Memo from Mr. King 

Officials Challenge 
And Meet Situations 

"Good officiating is in- 
dispensable in an intramural 
program. The caliber of offi- 
cials is reflected proportion- 
ately in the intramural program; 
thus, the quality of the intra- 
mural program at PBJC can be 
no better than the quality of 
the men who don the striped 
shirts to officiate." 

The above statements may 
seem potent, but this is the 
feeling expressed bythe men's 
physical education staff when 
asked about the officials at 

Officiating is a thankless 
task; however, the students 
who participate in intramurals 
at PBJC should appreciate the 
efforts of their fellow students 
who sacrifice their time, 
energy, patience, and in some 
extreme cases, friends for the 
sake of the teams participat- 
ing in intramurals. 

These men do not officiate 
for enjoyment— no one enjoys 
ridicule. They do not officiate 
for money-the pay is far from 
union wages. They do not offi- 
ciate for their health—for there 
are quite a few healthier pla- 
ces than in the midst of a tight 
athletic contest. Then why do 
they officiate? For the stu- 

"Intramural officiating is 
the toughest officiating you 
will find. Intramurals provide 
a perfect training grounds for 
future professional officiating. 
If an individual can be a suc- 
cessful intramural official, he 
he can surely make the grade 
as a high school official," 

says James King, physical 
education instructor and ex- 
football, basketball, baseball, 
softball, and volleyball of- 

The physical education 
staff is continually searching 
for prospective officials. 
These men do not need ex- 
perience. Officiating in intra- 
murals is a learning process, 
and all staff members are will- 
ing to help interested officials 
to learn more about the sport 
in which they are hoping to 

These men need to be of 
strong character. Officials are 
a persecuted lot. Who has ever 
heard of a team or a team man- 
ager boasting that the offi- 
cials won a game for them, but 
"Those %&$ officials sure 
beat us in that game," is the 
eternal rationalizer in athle- 
tics. So, a prospective offi- 
cial must be prepared to be a 
perpetual loser. 

Beginning last yeaT the 
physical education department 
has offered officials clinics

Reidinger, Petretti 
Lead Winning Ways 

The Misfits, showing the 
benefits of organization, ran 
over Phi Da Di Wednesday, 
September 26, 30-6. As in 
their first game, the Misfits 
were held to a tie throughout 
the first half. Fine defensive 
play by Marsh Burton and Fred 
Mascaro kept the Misfits from 
scoring more than once in the 
first half. 

Their only touchdown came 
as tiie result of a bad center 
from Sandy Hall on the first 
play of the game. The snap 
went over the quarterback's 
head and landed in the end 
zone. Art Omar got to the ball 
first and scored their first 
touchdown by simply touching 
it. Marvin Brigman scored for 
Phi Da Di on a run and tied 
the score. This ended the 
scoring in the first half. 

In the second half the Mis- 
fits scored three more TDs 
and got a safety for two 
points. Howard Ennis scored 
on a play which the Misfits 
used during most of the sec- 
ond half. This put the Misfits 
ahead by eight. The next time 
they had the ball, Buddy John- 
scored their third touchdown 
on a 40 yard pass from.Corey 
McGuire . 

Well on their way to their 
second straight victory, Steve 
Ross sewed it up with a 70 
yard run to make the score 
28-6. In the last play of the 
game they got two more points 
as John Holmes caught Brig- 
man in the end zone for a safe- 
ty. Holmes and Johnson also 
stood out on defense, knock- 
ing down the few passes Phi 
Da Di threw. Larry Reidinger, 
offensive captain, and Bob 
Petretti, defensive captain, 
led three units superbly as 
the Misfits won their second 
straight football game. 


Presently, Clark Hammeal, 
Jay Duman, John Cook, Ste- 
phen Edwards, Paul Reidinger, 
John Judice, Richard DaGos- 
tino, Terry Tergow, and Dave 
Tatham are officiating flag- 
football games. 

Thus far this season there 
have been no serious injuries 
during flag-football competi- 
tion. The players can thank 
good officiating for this.

On Campus 



{Author of "I Was a Teen-age Dwarf," "The Many 
Loves of Dobie Gillis," etc.) 


Can education bring happiness? 

This is a question that in recent years has caused much 
lively debate and several hundred stabbings among American 
college professors. Some contend that if a student's intellect 
is sufficiently aroused, happiness will automatically follow. 
Others say that to concentrate on the intellect and ignore the 
rest of the personality can only lead to misery. 

I myself favor the second view, and I offer in evidence the 
well-known case of Agathe Fusco. 

Agathe, a forestry major, never got anything less than a 
straight "A", was awarded her B.T. (Bachelor of Trees) in 
only two years, her M.S.B. (Master of Sap and Bark) in only 
three, and her D.B.C. (Doctor of Blight and Cutworms) in 
only four. 

Academic glory was hers. Her intellect was the envy of 
every intellect fan on campus. But was she happy? The 
answer, alas, was no. Agathe— she knew not why— was miser- 
able, so miserable, in fact, that one day while walking across 
campus, she was suddenly so overcome with melancholy that 
she rlang herself, weeping, upon the statue of the Founder. 

By and by a liberal arts major named R. Twinkle Plenty came 
by with his yoyo. He noted Agathe's condition. "How come 
you're so unhappy, hey?" said R. Twinkle. 

"Suppose you tell me, you dumb old liberal arts major," 
replied Agathe peevishly. 


Qme^eveK&x^-a.V&dbotv-ffl&efe } 

"All right, I will," said R. Twinkle. "You are unhappy for 
two reasons. First, because you have been so busy stuffing 
your intellect that you have gone and starved your psyche. I've 
got nothing against learning, mind you, but a person oughtn't 
to neglect the pleasant, gentle amenities of life— the fun 
tilings. Have you, for instance, ever been to a dance?" 

Agathe shook her head. 

"Have you ever watched a sunset? Written a poem? Smoked 
a Marlboro Cigarette?" 

Agathe shook her head. 

Well, we'll fix that right now!" said R. Twinkle and gave her 
a Marlboro and struck a match. 

She puffed, and then for the first time in twelve or fifteen 
years, she smiled. "Wow !" she cried. "Marlboros are a fun thins ! 
What flavor! What filter! What pack or box! What a lot to 
like! From now on I will smoke Marlboros, and never have 
another unhappy day!" 

"Hold!" said R. Twinkle. "Marlboros alone will not solve 
your problem— only half of it. Remember I said there were 
two things making you unhappy?" 

"Oil, yeah," said Agathe. "What's the other one?" 

"How long have you had that bear trap on your foot?" 
said R. Twinkle. 

"I stepped on it during a field trip in my freshman year," 
said Agathe. "I keep meaning to have it taken off." 

"Allow me," said R. Twinkle and removed it. 

"Land sakes, what a relief !" said Agathe, now totally happy, 
and took R. Twinkle's hand and led him to a Marlboro vendor's 
and then to a justice of the peace. 

Today Agathe is a perfectly fulfilled woman, both intelleet- 
wise and personalitywise. She lives in a darling split-level 
house with R. Twinkle and their 17 children, and she still keeps 
busy in the forestry game. Only last month, in fact, she became 
Consultant on Sawdust to the American Butchers Guild, she 
was named an Honorary Sequoia by the park commissioner of 
Las Vegas, and she published a best-selling book called / teas 
a Slippery Elm for the FBI. <ffi i« M» sWnMO 

The makers of Marlboro are pleased that Agathe is finally 
out of the woods — and so wilt you be if your goal is srnokinr/ 
pleasure. Just try a Marlboro.

creative literature from past 
issues of the Junior College 
literary magazine, Media. 
Poetry, essays, and a drama- 
tization of a short story will 
be included in the selections; • 
which are taken from three 
themes, the world, love, and 
people. They will all be 
given by a dramatic sestet 
that is sponsored by Phi Rho 
Pi, honorary speech fraternity. 
The sestet students include 
Gloria Maddox, Steve Jones, 
Jeane Austin, Larry Schiller, 
Camilla Tannery, and Ernie 
Ruesch. These students will 
work both individually and in 
groups, dramatizing each lit- 
erary selection in some way.

SGA Announces 
1962-63 Budget 

The Student Government 
has spent a great deal of time 
preparing a budget which 
would be most beneficial to 
each of one of the students 
on campus. 

The following are the per- 
centages of distribution of 
the student activity fee: 

Student publications such 
Media and Galleon, received 
40% of the budget. 

Seven per cent went to the 
social clubs as a fund to 
sponsor their dances and 
other all-school activities. 

The honor society received 
1% of the activity fees col- 

Thirteen per cent of the* 
budget was allotted to in- 
terest and service organiza- 
tions and groups. 

The Freshmen and Sopho- 
more Classes are recipients 
of 1% of the entire budget. 

Student government itself 
is allotted 2% of the budget. 

Thirteen per csnt of the 
total activity fee is set aside 
for miscellaneous purposes. 

liam McDaniel, advisor for 
Media, will be interviewed-. 

Representative settings 
have been devised to add vis- 
ual interest. Sophomore Bob 
Scott will play the guitar and 
bongo backgrounds. The nar- 
rator connecting various se- 
lection will be Keith Cheshire. 

The student technical As- 
sistant are R. Vanderbilt Fos- 
ter, Bob Achilli, and Carol 
Ann DeBates. 

Mr. Josh Crane of the Com- 
munications Dept. is TV co- 
ordinator and host for this 
program. The Channel 5 tech- 
nical director is Walter Berk- 
enfield, formerly a student of 

manv years. 

Nurses Lois Dnvall, M. 
Lee Evenson, and Madeline 
Chapman from the Palm Beach 
County Blood Bank were on 
hand to take the blood. Blood 
donated will be kept in the 
county blood bank; you and 
your immediate family are 
eligible to draw from this 

Orange juice and cookies, 

donated by Earle Robins of 

'the Prophet Company, were 

served by Thi Del girls to 


Many students who tried to 
donate were refused for 
health reasons. Anemia, low 
blood pressure, past illness 
and weight under 110 pounds 
kept students from donating. 
To these students we give 
many thanks, -and say try 
again next semester. To the 
students who gave their blood 
we say you have done a great 
service to yourself, your 
community, and your fellow 
man; our unfeigned apprecia- 
tion goes out to all of you.

Low Turnout Marks Frosh Class Vote; 
28.5 Per Cent Cast Ballots in Election 

LITTLE man on campus 

Out of approximately 1,084 
registered freshmen only 310 
freshmen voted for their class 
officers. They elected four 

The candidates are now 
elected ! 

Using the number of fresh- 
men that actually voted as a 
standard to judge the candi- 
dates by; there would be 
doubt in my mind as to the 
support that any of them 
would receive. Since this 
great responsibility HAS been 
placed in the hands of a few; 
may I say that the candidates 
elected are very capable 

The ratio of eligible 
Freshmen voters to the num- 
ber who voted is an alarming 
one and subject to study. 

On election day the cry 
was heard "I'm not going to 
vote, it's not fair"; "It's 
just not right"; "Only one 

person running for presi- 
dent." Many students had 
finally come to realize; after 
predging for Freshmen to 
sign up as candidates, and 
after numerous comments as 
to the fact that one young 
man was going unopposed for 
the office of class president. 

We would like to thank the 
many individuals that as- 
sisted their fellow student 
in becoming cognisant of the 
fact that after five days of 
sign-up for candidating that 
the presidential candidate 
was unopposed. 

In regard to fairness and 
Tightness of having a candi- 
date without opposition we 
would say just a minute and 
site an incident. The sign- 
up time for self-nomination 
was continued for five days; 
announcements were made; 
and prospective candidates 
were even ASKED to enter 


"Something to Cling To" 

The power of thought can 
not be overestimated. People 
who have been held captive 
in solitary confinement say 
that their survival was due to 
their ability to remember, to 
withstand the brainwashing, 
to keep faith, TO THINK; 
they had something to cling 

This thinking is not easy 
to do, for the mind must be 
trained. But each of us needs 
his own thoughts, his essen- 
tial being to cling to. WHY 
do we not train ourselves? 
Because we will not take the 
time to be ALONE; to know 
our innermost feelings. Too 
busy we are to realize our 
minds are going stale; our 
creativity, to waste. 

We are constantly on the 
go, working, playing, and 
trying to keep up with the 
family next door. We do not 
think because we do not have 
to. The television, radio, 
and newspaper suggest what 
we should buy, and we buy it. 
We hear a news commenta- 
tor's opinion and we adopt it. 
Many of our standards have 
turned to conformities. Daily 
we live habit-formed exis- 
tences, disgustingly smug 
and complacent. 

Yet now we face tremen- 
dous challenges: unanswered 
questions in medicine, baf- 
fling problems concerning the 
vast new field of space, the 
alarming threat of commu- 
nism. These challenges can 
be met only if we as individ- 

uals do our share in rising to 
meet them. With communism 
knocking right at our door, 
we turn a deaf ear, pretend it 
is not there? But it is! It is 
said that an individual can 
not do anything by himself. 
Well, why not? 

This is America, the place 
where many things are pos- 
sible, even if one is by him- 
self. America is, because 
men dared to be individuals 
with their own feelings and 
principles. Each of us should 
dare to stand alone. We can 
start by realizing our par- 
ticular roles in society. In 
order to be a true citizen, we 
must realize that the com- 
munists have a well-planned 
organization. How can we 
hope to understand their de- 
termined motives and ideals 
if we do not understand our- 

Everyday we should take 
the time to think-alone. We 
must learn our abilities and 
potentialities as individuals, 
we must acquire the self- 
confidence that comes only 
after self-knowledge. We must 
wake up before it is too late, 
before we must live in a 
world in which we can not be 
alone without being lonely. 
When we can coax the 
thoughts out of seclusion and 
become familiar with the 
pathways of our minds, then 
we can have hope for our- 
selves, our beliefs, our 
country -- then we will have 
that something to cling to.

The vice-president of your 
Student Government Associi 
ation and elections chairman, 
Carole Bischoff became vice- 
president last year unop- 
posed. There is no question 
in our minds of that the ejec- 
tion of Freshmen Class pf- 
ficers was a fair but apathet- 
ic one. 

This should be the chief 
concern of the truly demo- 
cratic freshman and most as- 
suredly is our concern -the 
the apparent apathy of the 
freshman voter. If lack of 
encouragement and interest 
prevailed soley on voting 
day this would be one thing; 
however, the freshmen indi- 
cated this spirit, or lack of 
spirit, during the entire elec- 
tion campaign beginning with 
the sign-up period. 

DO NOT question Student 
Government but instead look 
to one another and ask your 
question of fairness. As 
Freshmen you have not been 
fair to your class. 

This Freshman campaign 
was in marked contrast to 
the enthusiasm and interest 
shown by our Freshmen the

stand out from all the rest. 
These quivering, gum car- 
riers and hand shakers are 
the pledges of 1962.

veloping their sense of 
sportsmanship and leader-

On Campus 


(Author of "I Was a Teen-age Dwarf", "The Many 
Loves of Dobie Gillis", etc.) 


Just the other night I was saying to the little woman, "Do you 
think the importance of tests in American colleges is being 
overemphasized?" (The little woman, incidentally, is not, as 
you might think, my wife. My wife is far from a little woman. 
She is, in fact, almost seven feet high and heavily muscled. 
She is a full-blooded Chiricahua Apache and holds the world's 
hammer-throw record. The little woman I referred to is some- 
one we found crouching under the sofa when we moved into 
our apartment several years ago, and there she has remained 
ever since. She never speaks, except to make a kind of guttural 
clicking Sound when she is hungry. Actually, she is not too 
much fun to have around , but with my wife away at track meets 
most of the time, at least it gives me somebody to talk to.) 
But I digress. "Do you think the importance of tests in 
American colleges is being overemphasized?" I said the other 
night to the little woman, and then I said, "Yes, Max, I do 
think the importance of tests in American colleges is being 
overemphasized." (As I have explained, the little woman does 
not speak, so when we have conversations; I am forced to do 
both parts.) 

M-wlly, iy & mi {oo iwh hkhcmw 

To get back to tests— sure, they're important, but let's not 
allow them to get too important. There are, after all, many 
qualities and talents that simply can't be measured by quizzes. 
Is it right to penalize a gifted student whose gifts don't happen 
to be of the academic variety? Like, for instance, Gregor 

Gregor, a freshman at the New Hampshire College of Tanning 
and Belles Lettres, has never passed a single test; yet all who 
know him agree that he is studded with talent like a ham with 
cloves. He can, for example, sleep standing up. He can do a 
perfect imitation of a scarlet tanager. (I don't mean just do 
the bird calls; I mean he can fly South in the winter.) He can 
pick up B-B's with his toes. He can say "Toy boat" three times 
fast. He can build a rude telephone out of two empty Marlboro 
packs and 100 yards of butcher's twine. (Of all his impressive 
accomplishments, this last is the one Gregor likes to do best 
—not building the telephone, but emptying the Marlboro 
packs. Gregor doesn't just dump the Marlboros out of the 
pack. He smokes them one at a time— settling back, getting 
comfortable, savoring each tasty puff. As Gregor often says 
with a winsome smile, "By George, the makers of Marlboro 
took their time finding this fine flavor, this great filter, and by 
George, I'm going to take my time enjoying 'em!") 

Well, sir, there you have Gregor Sigafoos— artist, humanist, 
philosopher, Marlboro smoker, and freshman since 1939. Will 
the world— so desperately in nee~d of talent— ever benefit from 
Gregor's great gifts? Alas, no. He is in college to stay. 

But even more tragic for mankind is the case of Anna Livia 
Plurabelle. Anna Livia, a classmate of Gregor's, had no talent, 
no gifts, no brains, no personality. All she had was a knack for 
taking tests. She would cram like crazy before a test, always 
get a perfect score, and then promptly forget everything she had 
learned. Naturally, she graduated with highest honors and 
degrees by the dozen, but the sad fact is that she left college 
no more educated, no more prepared to cope with the world, 
than when she entered. Today, a broken woman, she crouches 
under my sofa. © 1!W2 te sl > ul ™"> 

And speaking of tests, we makers of Marlboro put our 
cigarette through an impressive number before we send 
it to the market. But ultimately, there is only one test 
that counts: Do YOU like it? We think you will.

By Bonnie 

Very few people realize 
just how much work and ef- 
fort goes into producing a 
play such as "Look Home- 
ward Angel". 

A person enters the theatre 
and views the stage for the 
first time — the scenery, the 
lighting, the sounds which 
they hear; they see the seats 
in the auditorium filled with 
their friends and members of 
the community -- but do they 
ever stop to think about how 
all of those things were able 

Backstage -- and much needs to be done to create a 
performance of "Look Homeword, Angel". 


Eliza strikes out with rage as her son, Ben Gant uncovers to 
true self and ideas. Mrs. Pert, Ben's elder girl friend and 
Eugene only want them to stop making a scene or else the 
boarders will hear the arguing and perhaps wish to leave. 

ber Staff 

to be there? This remains 

True, after the perform- 
ance, several comments are 
made about the actors and 
about the play itself but what 
about the entire crew who 
made the production possible? 
To quote Prank Leahy, di- 
rector of all the plays Palm 
Beach Junior College has pro- 
duced, "A play is like a jig- 
saw puzzle; if one piece is 
left out of the picture, no 
matter how beautiful it may 
be, the piece which is miss- 
ing will be the first thing one 
will notice." 

To begin with, the sale of 
seasonal tickets which we are 
now selling for the first time, 
involves many long and tiring 
hours; planning reservations, 
writing letters, taking care of 
publicity, selling tickets to 
students and adults. Phi Ro 
Pi members as well as the 
social clubs and honorary 
societies on campus are de- 
voting much of their time to 
this project alone. 

For many weeks, scenery 
has been in the process of 
being built, costumes are 
being made to fit the era of 
the play, make up has been 
ordered and used, painting 
has been done by the stage 
crew, ushers have been as- 
signed, lighting and sound 
has been established, pic- 
tures have been taken, and 
actors have spent many long 
hours memorizing their lines 
and going to rehearsals. 

Perhaps now you can 
understand why it is so grati- 
fying to all concerned with 
the production to hear those 
few words ~ "That was cer- 
tainly a marvelous play! 
Everyone did a fine job." 
Think about it.

Pakistani engineers tour campus 

P.B.J.C. was the first college campus Pakistani electronic 
engineers Ahmad and Imam visited. (Left to right in above pic- 
ture,) Touring the campus, they commented upon the beauty of 
our southern college. Their main interest was, of course, 
electronics. At the Technical building they were amazed at 
the amount of electronic equipment that the college has. After 
their visit, they were each presented a yearbook. 

Mr. Ahmad and Mr. Imam are participants of the Interna- 
tional-On-The-Job Training Program being carried out by the

A Point of Vie 


Television Not All Bad 
It's How You Look At It 

By Renny M, Connell 
Beachcomber Columnist 

In the last issue of the 
BEACHCOMBER, a fellow 
columnist of mine said some 
very unkind words about the 
quality of today's television 
programs. Well, I agree with 
him that TV could be lots 
better, but I object to the 
classification of the Bull- 
winkle Show as low-brow, en- 
tertainment. I happen to en- 
joy watching the antics of the 
moronic moose, the aviation 
cap-wearing squirrel, Dudley 
Doorlght, and, of course, Sid- 
ney Whiplash. What I dislike 
are all the horrible "kiddie" 
cartoons. When a college sits 
around week after week 
watching Huckleberry Hound 
and Yogi Bear, he shouldn't 
be left alone in a dark room. 
But there is nothing abnormal 
about watching an occasional 
Bullwinkle or Bugs Bunny. 

On the subject of tele- 
vision, I have many unpopular 
opinions. I despise Donna 
Reed, her husband, and her 
bucktoothed son. It is the 
most nauseating program on 
the air. You couldn't pay me 
to watch Mike Hammer, Las- 
sie, The Plintstones, The 
Hathaways, or Queen for a 
Day. I cringe in horror when 
Sophie starts lauding Spic 
and Span in that bass voice 
of hers, I laugh in derision at 
the Marlboro men. I whirl out 
the door when Loretta Young 
whirls in. I don't even like 
the Price is Right. Is there 
any hope for me? 

Seriously though, I think 
there are many worth-while 

programs on television today. 
Permit me to list the ones I 
try not to miss: 

Continental Classroom, To- 
day, all news programs, The 
Tonight Show. 

Man's World, To Tell the 
Truth, Danny Thomas, David 
Brinkley's Journal, Miami 

bat, Red Skelton, Jack Benny, 
Gary Moore, Sid Caesar, Dick 
Powell, Sergeant Bllko, Chet 
Huntley, Close-Up. 

CBS Reports, Perry Como, 
Steel Hour, Circle Theater. 

Kildare, Hazel, Alfred Hitch- 
cock, Andy Williams, Alcoa 

hide, Route 66, Jack Paar. 

ie Gleason, Sam Benedict, 
The Defenders, Saturday 
Night at the Movies, Have 
Gun-Will Travel. 

and Answers, die 20th Cen- 
tury, Meet the Press, Winston 
Churchill, Miami Press Con- 
ference, Walt Disney, Ed 
Sullivan, Sunday Night Movie, 
Car 54, Show of the Week, 
Voice of Firestone, Howard 
K. Smith. 

I think those are some of 
the better television programs 
on commercial television in 
our area. I shall not attempt 
to list the bad ones for fear 
of vengeance and for lack of

New Course Open 
Chronic Autoitis 

By Chris Tenno 
'Comber Feature. Editor 

In the midst of today's fast 
moving world, PBJC students 
have discovered one of the 
few, remaining spots where 
the pace of living is com- 
paratively sluggish. A Ml 
description of this situation 
is frequently spat out by 
students attempting to reach 
the campus at eight o'clock. 
All the traffic of Palm 
Beach County seems to cong- 
regate daily at the intersec- 
tion of Congress Avenue and 
Lake Worth Road. Business- 
men, teachers, and students 
alike await the chance to 
dare the perils of a left turn 
in a heavy stream of conges- 
ted traffic. 

It is on this battlefield 
thatAmerica's greatest status 
symbol takes a thrilling 
stand. Here too the cold war 
between the neat, new com- 
pact and the massive touring 
car becomes quite real. Not 
an inch of available road is 
left wanton as exhaust fumes 
and rasping horns are ex- 
changed. PBJC students are 
among the most cautious 
drivers because room to at- 
tempt a traffic violation does 
not exist. 

This daily bout helps to 
sharpen reflexes and broaden 
vocabularies. There is al- 
ways plenty of time for last 
minute cramming or last 
night's homework. The stu- 
dent may be kept up-to-date 
on campus and world news by 
participating in a heated dis- 
cussion with a friend five 
cars down. Conversation is 
more lively in competition 
with the irritating background 
of horns, faulty mufflers, and 
frustrated groans.

Clubs, Quiet and Cars 
Invade Campus Again 

By Bob Bennett 
Beachcomber Columnist 

The joining spirit has hit PBJC just as it hits campus 
around the nation every year. Students at PBJC are espe 
ally endowed with a great variety of fine social and serv: 
clubs they may join. 

At this time of the year pledges for various fraternities i 
sororities have begun to carry out orders that entail eve 
thing from a handshake to goldfish swallowing. These org 
izations, naturally, form the nucleus of campus social li 
In sororities and fraternities the primary purpose is purel, 
social one. This is the way it should be. The opposite

This however, is not always the case. 

People who join a service club, on or off campus, m 
join with the idea in mind of what their purpose is. They

because of prestige connected with membership in sel 
clubs. They join in order to serve their fellows. If this 
not their primary purpose the very essence of service cl

Draft Deferment News Dollars for Scholars 
For College students f start November 12 

Every national emergency 
brings a rush of students who 
want to be deferred from the 
draft. It would be wise for 
the "selectees" to familiar- 
ize themselves with the ope- 
ration of the Selective Service 
System before they push the 
panic button. 

A student registered with 
the Selective Service System 
who wishes to be deferred 
from the draft by attendance 
in college should be a regu- 
lar student doing satisfactory 
work. If he is a regular stu- 
dent, he will be ranked with 
other students at the close of 
the year. For students who 
enter in September, the yeart 
ends in June; for those who 
enter in February, the year 
ends in January. 

Although the college con- 
siders a student carrying 12 
semester hours a regular stu- 
dent, he cannot be ranked at 
the end of the year. If a stu- 
dent drops a subject during a 
semester, he should take an 
extra load the following se- 
1 mester to be ranked for the

As Humanities Building 
Is Approved by Board 

The Palm Beach County Board of Public Instruction has 
given approval to preliminary plans for construction of a hu- 
manities building at Palm Beach Junior College. 

The building is slated to be located west of the Audi- 
torium toward Congress Avenue. Included in the proposed 
plans are: two design laboratories, a painting lab, a crafts 
lab, two general classrooms for art appreciation and perhaps 
a classroom for literature. 

The 1962 "Dollars for Scholars" campaign, sponsored by 
the Palm Beach Junior College Alumni Association is sched- 
uled to begin Monday, November 12. 

The Alumni Association has announced that this year's 
campaign will be different from the one held last year. 

The approach used this 
year will be the direct mail- 
ing of self-addressed enve- 
lopes to all alumni, parents 
of present students, teachers 
in the county system, parents 
of high school seniors who 
are scheduled to visit the 
campus in November, and 
any addresses supplied by 
students and friends of the 

These envelopes are to 
contain a plea asking for a 
donation of one dollar to be 
used for work scholarships 
which will allow students to

on which he is studying. 

Dean Paul J. Glynn has 
asked that any student who 
wished to give envelopes to 
friends who were not includ- 
ed in the direct mailing may 
drop by his office and pick 
up some self-addressed en- 
velopes which be has on hand

Kappa Assembly 
Tapping, Pledge 
Ceremonies Set 

Delta Omicron Chapter of 
the national junior college 
honorary fraternity, Phi Theta 
Kappa has scheduled its first 
tapping ceremony of the year 
for Monday, November 12, in 
an all-school assembly. 

Students eligible for tap- 
ping include those who have 
an over-all 3.0 or "B" aver- 
age for their semesters of 
study at Palm Beach Junior 
College (meaning their over- 
all average must be 3.0 even 
though they did not have a 
3.0 average first semester 
last fall). 

In addition to that require- 
ment prospective members 
must be a regular student 
carrying at least 15 hours of 
college work; 12 of which 
are transferable to a senior 
college for a four yeardegree. 

Newly tapped pledges are 
slated to participate in a 
pledge ceremony during the 
regular Kappa meeting, Wed- 
nesday, November 12. 

At the time of the pledge 
ceremony, students who 
pledged last semester but 
failed to be initiated or failed 
to pay their dues will be in- 
itiated if they fulfill their 

Bob Harris, PTK presi- 

dent, says that new pledges 
will be set to work as soon 
as possible in helping mem- 
bers preparing for the na- 
tional Phi Theta Kappa Con- 
vention hosted by the campus 

Two rehearsal rooms, ten 
or twelve practice rooms, 
three studios, and two small 
theory classrooms are also 
slated to be part of the two- 
story building. 

Plans are for construction 
to start shortly after the first 
of the year. 

Also included in the pro- 
posed expansion plans are a 
book store receiving center 
and a small addition to the 
service garage. 

The present bookstore fa- 
cilities are slated to be con- 
verted 'into a student health 
clinic thus removing the 
present clinic from the Stu- 
dent Personnel Office. 

The music building is set 
to be converted into a portion 
of the Student Center complex 
when the new building is 
completed. Included in this 
new center may be such stu- 
dent activities as the Stu- 
dent Government, the BEACH- 
COMBER, and the Galleon, 
among others. 

It is hoped that the pro- 
posed construction will be 
completed by the fall semes- 
ter of 1963.

A Point of View 

Kennedy - His Own Profile in Courage 
Opinionated Opinions on Current News 

By Renny M. Connell 
Beachcomber Columnist 

Americans are proving their distaste for 
appeasement to the Communists by their tre- 
mendous support of President Kennedy's de- 
cisive action against Red Cuba. 

I am sure that every true American felt the 
glow of patriotism (which is "old fashioned" 
to today's modern liberals) when President 
Kennedy proclaimed that we would never fall 
back in submission to Communism. 

His eloquent but simple speech was rem- 
iniscent of Winston Churchill's "We will 
never surrender." After that speech most of 
us are ready to say: "Better dead than Red. 
To hell with Bertrand Russell." Life without 
liberty IS death. 

NOTES ON THE NEWS: Miami's best 
radio stations are WGBS, WCKR, WAME, and 
WINZ. WQAM isn't even considered, "Tige. 
radio" proves its regard for the public taste 
by its programming - nothing but offensive 
echo chambers, loud deejays, obnoxious com- 
mercials, repetitive call letters, extremely 
light news coverage, and generally bad music. 

The next governor of Florida will be either 
Hayden Burns or Fred O. Dickenson with 
odds on the former. 

Why is Biology a required course at PBJC? 

Size has nothing to do with strength. Wit- 
ness Belle Glade's Big Bill Burke and his 
fighting Golden Rams. Don't discount us 

The Miami Herald refused to endorse form- 
er Senator Claude Pepper for Congress. The 
Herald endorsed his Republican opponent, 
Bob Peterson. A two party system in Florida? 

Time magazine, which hardly ever says 
anything good about movies, had praises for 
the religious epic, "Barabbas.*' 

I think the BEACHCOMBER needs a little 
ribald humor to pep it up. What about it folks, 

A puzzling man from a puzzling country: 
Neutral Nehru from neutral India. 

It seems that "Newsweek 's" blistering 
review of Allen (Advise and Consent) Drury's 
new book, "A shade of Difference", did it 
little harm. It stands 'way up on the best 
seller list. 

The Miami Herald prints more news than 
any other newspaper in the United States with 
the exception of the Los Angeles Times. 
This includes the "holy" New York Times. 

There are 8,000,000 stories in the Naked 

City. Then why do they have re-runs every 

One of the best magazines in the country, 
(and one of the most imitated) is "Mad". It's; 
ten years old. 

WLBW-TV in Miami is urging everyone who 
can to display the American flag during the 
current crisis. A fine idea. 

Perhaps the reason that so few Freshmen 
voted in the recent PBJC elections is that 
they don't know the candidates, what the 
officers have to do, and what the candidates 
plan to do when in office. 

The Nation reports that Senator Barry 
Goldwater of Arizona doesn't like criticism. 
A student at the University of Colorado wrote 
some very unkind words about the conserva- 
tive Republican in his college newspaper. 
Sen. Goldwater seemingly flew into a rage, 
demanded apologies from the student, the 
newspaper, and even the college president. 

To top this, he requested the expulsion of 
the student. According to The Nation's ac- 
count, Senator Goldwater doesn't practice 
what he preaches about freedom. What about 
freedom of speech and freedom of the press, 

"Dondi" is trying to rival "Little Orphan 
Annie" in maudlin nonsence. 

If I mentioned the names of two of my fa- 
orite Americans, most people would say, 
"Who?" They are Clarence Darrow and Al 
Jolson. Both now belong to the ages. 

Ted Kennedy and George Cabot Lodge ap- 
peared on "Meet the Press" the other day. 
They are running for a two-year term in the 
United States Senate from Massachusetts. 
Their campaign styles showed up clearly and 
very different. 

Kennedy, like his older brother in the 
1960 campaign, had short speeches prepared 
on every subject which he referred to without 
much trouble; he skillfully dodged the ques- 
tion's he didn't care to answer; and, of 
course, he smiled in all the right places. 

Lodge, to me, seemed like a breath of 
fresh ail after Kennedy's familiar cliches. 
While not nearly so attractive and even stut- 
tering a bit, he answered each question in a 
few words. He was very simple, very honest, 
and (thank God) very different from Edward 
M. (Ted) Kennedy.

Complainers and Doers 
Prevalent on Campus 

Palm Beach Junior College is divided into two groups 
students: the complainers and the doers. This divisior 
most evident in all phases of extra curricular activities. 

The complainers are by far the most boisterous of the 
groups. Everything and anything comes under their crit: 
eye, sometimes rightly so, but a majority of times unjustly 

In preparing a newspaper for publication on a col] 
campus of this size one can become very aware of botl 
these groups. Needless to say the group most easy to 
along witnout is the complainers. 

This group never gets enough publicity (or so they s 
and if they do get publicity their name is always spel 
wrong or their deeds are misconstrued. 

What this group of students neglect to take into consid< 
tion is the small staff operating the paper in relationshl] 
the large student body. They also fail to remember 
notices were placed in the bulletin almost daily to ren 
them of the BEACHCOMBER'S deadline. These things 
conveniently forgotten when it is time to complain. 

The main trouble with the complainer is that he ru 
seems to realize that the easiest way to make sure that 
cause of his complaint is erased is to become a doer 
erase it himself. 

The doers (thank goodness for them) are unfortuna 
only a small percentage of any given group. This percent 
is in most cases saddled with the responsibility of their 
job plus any left over responsibilities of the complain 
who always seem to be absent when work is to be done. 

Palm Beach Junior College is said to have a high pop 
tion of joiners — let us say from now on that we will not 
join an organization to get our picture in the annual but 
join to become a doer to increase the stature of the organ 
tion and of ourselves.

es; one out of every six eld- 
erly people can enter the 
hospital; one-half of 1700 can 
get along on income of $20 
and a third on $43 a week. 

She also stressed the im- 
\ portance of the Kerr-Mills 
| Act, which is presently trying 
BO provide a larger income for 
| the aged, and the King-And- 
; erson Bill, which provides for 
; the aged during their less

Folk Trio 
On Campus 

An over-flow audience 
greeted the American Folk 
Trio as they performed for 
the first all-school assembly 
of the 1962-63 school year. 

A total of thirteen selec- 
tions were performed by the 
Trio from the major headings: 
song of the open road; the 
wonderful world of a child; 
steel men, weavers, and sold- 
iers; a parable for our times, 
and goodbye to the open road. 

Audience participation was 
one of the unique methods 
used to insure attention by 
the trio. The use of numerous 
tunings of instruments was 
another attention getter. 

Especially well received 
was "Old King Cole" sang 
by Dave Sear and Lee Kahn, 
which in their words indi- 
cated the amount of sophisti- 
cation an audience had, 

Sonja Savig's final song, 
"Where Have All the Flowers' 
Gone", also received a great 
deal of applause.

Co-Ed Club Making Plans 
For Sadie Hawkins Day and Dance 

Three Coins 
In Fountain 
Bring Luck 

By Lois Preston 
Beachcomber Staff 

Three coins or even one 
will do for the Wishing Well. 
Now that mid-term exams are 
here many students who are 
doing some idle wishing 
might try using the Wishing 
Well. Here's how you do it. 

First find Palm Beach 
Junior College. (That should- 
n't be hard.) Next find the 
Administration Building. 

Next look for water, rocks 
and beautiful landscaping. 
This is the Wishing Well. 

Now wish very hard and 
throw in a coin. Now that 
wasn't hard, was it? 

And think of what you gain 
— a wish come true, (well — 
you never can tell) and help 
for an orphan overseas.

November 6, 1962 




November 6, 1962 


Page 5 

The Mis-Pits have won the 
intramural flag-tag football 
championship for the second 
consecutive year downing Chi 
Sig 36-6. The final game, on 
October 22, was very close. 

The Mis-Fits took the 
opening kick-off, and on the 
first play from scrimmage, 
quarterback, Cory McGuise, 
hit left end, Larry Reidinger, 
on a quick pass. Steve Ross 
scampered down to the Chi- 

Sig six yard line. McGuise 
scored a TD on a power play. 
He fired a pass to Reidinger 
for the extra point, and the 
Mis-Fits took an early lead. 

Fighting back, Chi Sig 
quarterback, Terry Coxe, hit 
lanky, halfback Jay Groover 
who scooted around the right 
end down to the Mis-Pits ten 
yard line. Pour plays later, 
Tommy Riggs caught Coxe's 
pass just over the goal line. 
The try for extra points fail- 

ed, and the Mis- Pits led 8-6. 
It became a battle of defence 
with the half ending 14-6. 

Chi Sig, after receiving 
the second half kick-off were 
held by the Mis-Fit defence. 
From then on it was all Mis- 
Fits as McGuise hit Reid- 
inger for another TD and the 
extra points. McGuise ran, 
over for two more TO's and 
hit Ross for the final two 

PBJC Art Club Members 
Have Fun and Learning 

The Art Club's semester 
activities, in addition to 
painting and drawing, will 
include campus improvement 
and service projects, the Art- 
ists and Models Ball, visits 
to art shows and museums, 
and demonstrational talks by 
professional artists. 

At their first meeting, Mr. 
Robert Moore, Assistant Di- 
rector of the Norton Art Gal- 
lery, spoke of "Demonstrat- 
ing an Illustrating for a 
Magazine." This demonstra- 
tion speech proved to be of 
invaluable aid to students 
pursuing the field of com- 
mercial art. Mr. Moore ans- 
wered many pertinent Ques- 
tions concerning the impor- 
tance of commercial art, 
business art, and the back- 
ground needed to enter these 
fields. He pointed out that 
the many subdivisions of. 
these fields make it possible 
to satisfy specific talents 
and interests. Commercial 
art demands constant learning 
and the will to work for 

The art club officers for 
the first semester include

Jack Edder, vice-president;

All of these areas are in 
need of student help and by 
the same token, there are 
many students who need fi- 
nancial help to continue their 
education," said Dean Glynn. 

The drive will last for two 
weeks. It has a tentative 
goal of $2,000. 

Dean Glynn wouHl like 
student volunteers to help 
prepare the mail by typing 
addresses and placing stamps 
on envelopes. All students 
who would be able to help 
are asked to stop in the Stu- 
dent Personnel Office and 
Leave their name. 

Members of the champion, flag-tag team, tthe Mis-Pits, kneel-

Draft News 

(Con't from page 1) 

At present, the Local 
Board Number 43 is calling 
only 23 year olds. 

When a student receives a 
SSS card, classifying him in 
1A, he should come to the 
main office and fill out a re- 
quest slip, giving his name, 
address, Selective Service 
number, birth date and other 
required information. A 109 
form will then be sent to his 
Local Draft Board giving all 
pertinent information, If he 
is a sophmore and his status 
is acceptable, he is reclassi- 
fied to IIS. If he is a fresh- 
man, the 109 is merely placed 
in his Local Board file as he 
cannot be deferred until he 
has completed a full year 
with acceptable grades and 
has been ranked. 

If a student withdraws 
from the school during the 
year, he should notify the 
Local Board immediately 
rather than wait for the col- 
lege to do so. 

Selectees who wish addi- 
tional information may see 
Miss Wilson in the main of- 
fice or contact their local 
draft board.

On Campus 

(Author of "I Was a Teen-age Dwarf", "The Many 
Loves of Dobie Gillis", etc.) 


Oh, sure, you've been busy, what with going to classes, doing 
your homework, catching night crawlers, getting married — 
but can't you pause for just a moment and give thought to that 
dear, dedicated, lonely man in the big white house on the hill? . 
I refer, of course, to the Prexy. 

(It is interesting to note here that college presidents are al- 
ways called "Prexy." Similarly, trustees are called "Trixie." 
Associate professors are called "Axy-Pixy." Bursars ate called 
"Foxy-Woxy." Students are called "Algae.") 

But I digress. We were speaking of the Prexy, a personage at 
once august and pathetic. Why pathetic? Well sir, consider how 
Prexy spends his days. He is busy, busy, busy. He talks to 
deans, he talks to professors, he talks to trusteees, he talks to 
alumni. In fact, he talks to everybody except the one group 
who could lift his heart and rally his spirits. I mean, of course, 
the appealingest, endearingest, winsomest group in the entire 
college— you, the students. 

It is the Prexy's sad fate to be forever a stranger to your 
laughing, golden selves. He can only gaze wistfully out the 
window of his big white house on the hill and watch you at your 
games and sports and yearn with all his tormented heart to 
in your warmth. But how? It would hardly be fitting for Prexy 
to appear one day at the Union, clad in an old rowing blazer, 
and cry gaily, "Heigh-ho, chaps! Who's for sculling?" 

No, friends, Prexy can't get to you. It is up to you to get t 
him. Call on him at home. Just drop in unannounced. He wil 
naturally be a little shy at first, so you must put him at hi 
ease. Shout, "Ho'wdy-doody, sir! I have come to bring a littl 
sunshine into your drear and blighted life!" Then yank hi 
necktie out of his vest and scamper goatlike around him unt 
he is laughing merrily along with you. 

Then hand him a package and say, "A little gift for you, wir. 

"For me?" he will sav, lowering his lids. "You shouldrv 

"Yes, I should," you will say, "because this package : 
a carton of Marlboro Cigarettes, and whenever I think r 
Marlboro, I think of you." 

"Why, hey?" he will say curiously. 

"Because Marlboros have taste, and so do you," you wi 

"Aw, go on," he will say, blushing furiously. 

"It's true," you will say. "Moreover, Marlboro has a fUte 
and so do you." 

"In my swimming pool, you mean," he will say. 

"Yes," you will say. "Moreover, Marlboro has a soft pao] 
and so do you." 

"My limp leather brief case, you mean," he will say. 

"Yes," you will say. "Moreover, the Marlboro box has 
flip-top, and so do you." 

"But I don't have a flip-top," he will say. 

"But you will," you will say. "Just light 4 Marlboro, an 
taste that tasty taste, and you will surely flip your top." 

Well sir, you will have many a good chuckle about that, y c 
may be sure. Then you will say, "Goodbye, sir, I will retin 
soon again to brighten your lorn and desperate life." 

"Please do," he will say. "But next time, if you can possib] 
manage it, try not to come at four in the morning."

Insung Hero -the Referee Co -Ed Volleyball SltOWS 

Defending Champs Lead 

Dedication is an important 
goal in all sports activities 
is all members of intramural 
teams must know. Some of 
them for their dedication will 
be given awards at the end of 
the year. 

But what about the people 
at the sidelines whose work 
Is highly criticized and who 
receive little or no recogni- 
tion for their work? I am talk- 
ing about the student referees 
jat the games. 

In the past few weeks I 
ihave heard some adverse 
comments about their work on 
the fields. Little do these 
individuals know of the dedi- 
cation it takes to be a ref- 

First, they are accused of 
taking the job for the pay in- 
volved. None of these indi- 
viduals even know what their 
pay is, and most don't care. 
Well it is $1.00 a game. 
And games take a few hours 
at least. Plus the time it 
takes to get the equipment 
in and out and the time it 
takes to get here and back 
home should add up to at 
least 3 l A or 4 hours. That 
[means he gets less than 30* 
an hour. 

How many of you would 
work for that wage? Not very 

He also has to make a fair 
decision in any dispute or 
hard to judge play. And he 
knows that one of the teams 
is going to be hurt. I will say 
that for most of die decisions 
that the referees have made, 
there have been only a few 
dissentions over these de- 

Of course there are a few 
students who think that "if 
Leo Durocher can do it, so 
can I". It is interesting to 
note that most of the people 
who make those rash state- 
ments about the referees, 
either don't belong to a team 
or play only occasionally, at 

How about a little more 
recognition for those student 
referres like Dick D'agostino, 
who have a perfect attend- 
ance record for all the games. 
Its pretty hard to play a game 
and win when there is a 
shortage of players, but its 
impossible to play at all when 
the referee doesn't show up. 
So lets give these dedicated 
men a pat on the back and a 
"Well Done Men." 

-- Dick Robinson 

After two nights of play 
the defending champions Mis- 
Pits and their fellow team 
Mis-Pits TOO surged into an 
early lead in their respective 
leagues, Green and Gold.

Officials Needed 

If any students are inter- 
ested in officiating at intra- 
mural basketball games this 
season, they should attend 
the Officials Clinic, Novem- 
ber 19 and 20 from 3:45-5:00 
p.m. in the gym. 

All interested parties 
should contact Harris McGirt 
in Office 2 of the gym. All 
team captains and partici- 
pants are also urged to at- 

25 to remain the only un- 
beaten team in their league. 

The Mis-Fits TOO led by 
Kathy Inglis and Howard En- 
nis rolled over Alpha Omega 
by a score of (15-8) (15-10) 
and Phi Be Lo (15-9) (15-10). 
Other action in the gold 
league saw Phi Da Lo barely 
squeeze by the Crazy Eights 
(15-2) (12-15) and (16-14) in 
the closest match of the 
night. Richard Miller and 
Verna Durrance paced the 
Crazy Eights in a valiant ef- 
fort that just barely fell short. 
Chi-Del, led by Terry 
Coxe, Hugh Brady and Cheryl 
Ellison split their two match- 
es as they rolled over the 
Off-Beats (15-0) and (15-2), 
but lost to the rebounding 
Crazy Eights (7-15) (7-15). 

Alpha Omega, with the 
strong play by Gariann Pap- 
pert and Becky Trexler de- 
feated the Off-Beats (15-1) 
(15-4) on a battle of the win- 

In the Green League games 
the Excaliburs led by Dave 
Hutt and Pat Richards stop- 
ped the Night Raiders in the 
two games by identical 15-7 

The Excaliburs then pro- 
ceeded to knock off Lambda 
Omega (15-2) (15-8). 

The play Thursday, Octo- 
ber 18 saw five of the six 
matches go the full distance 
of three games. Only the 
Crazy Eights were able to end 
their match in two games as 
they edged the Off-Beats (15- 
-9) (15-13). 

In other Gold League ac- 
tion Phi Da Lo downed Alpha 
Omega (15-8) (5-15) and (15- 
-8). The Mis-Fits TOO fought 
from behind to down Chi Del 
(15-4) (12-15) and (17-15) on 
a real thriller. 

In Green League play the 
Mis-Fits after dropping their 
first game to Chi Phi (10-15) 
caught fire and took the two 
remaining games (15-5) (15- 

Lambda Omega forfeited to

Gives Excellent Start 
To JC Drama Season 

"Look Homeward, Angel" 
the opening production of the 
1962-63 College Players Sea- 
son treat was well worth 
waiting for — even to the 
point of waiting an extra ten 
minutes before the curtain 
went up opening night. 

Excellent is the only word 
to describe the award winning 
play as it was presented on 
the college stage. Lighting, 
set design, make-up, costum- 
ing and especially charac- 
terization come in for some 
extra credit for a job well 

Laughter, anger, sorrow 
and pity were well balanced 
as a panorama of American 
life unfold throughout the per- 
formance. Each emotional 
outpouring was well balanced 
and comical relief was used 
to good advantage. Some of 
the best comical relief came 
with Eugene's first attempts 
to converse with Laura and 
portions of the scene where 
W.O. came home drunk. 

Perhaps the most outstand- 
ing player in the production 
was Gloria Maddox. Through 
her Eliza Gant lept to life 
and aroused the antagonism 
and hatred of almost every 
member of the audience. True 
to her personality, Eliza re- 
mained a money worshipper 
throughout the play - although 
she did give signs of weaken- 
ing in the third act. Her re- 
maining true to form aided the 
production in giving it con- 
tinuity and vitality. 

Steve Jones, in his first 
maior role on the PBJC stage 
brought a fresh new life to 
the interpretation of Eugene 
Gant, the young teen-ager 
striving for self-recognition. 
His struggles as he en- 
countered his first love, as 
he experienced rebellion 
against his mother and as he 
fought for the right to an edu- 
cation and to wander through- 
out the world enabled a ma- 
jority of the audience, not so 
far removed from that age, to 
put themselves in his place 
and experience his problems. 

Tom Mook, no stranger to 
College Players productions 
turned in another great per- 
formance as Ben Gant. His 
understanding, compassionate 
and sometimes antagonistic 
attitude toward "little broth- 
er" aroused many signs of 
recognition of the relation- 
ships which audience mem- 

bers have with their younger 
brothers and sisters. In nis 
relationship with Mrs. Pert 
one could see his striving 
for the compassion and 
understanding so greatly 
denied by his mother. 

The old reprobate, W.O. 
Gant, was another favorite of 
the audience. Portrayed by 
Al Seibert, he was a poor 
misunderstood man to the 
audience who championed his 
cause throughout. He came 
on as a rather hazy character 
in the Irst act. however, be- 
fore the play was finished he 
had become one of the strong- 
est characters as well as one 
who received a great part of 
audience sympathy. 

Jenni Austin captured the 
character of Laura James 
with great believibillty. Her 
sensitivity was very apparent 
and her love for Eugene sym- 
pathetic and warm. 

Other players that were 
outstanding in their contribu- 
tions were : Anne Ellen Quin- 
cey as Mrs. Fatty Pert, the 
sweet, understanding confi- 
dant and friend of Ben Gant; 
Celeste Holt as Helen Gant 
Barton, the daughter who 
wavered in her loyalty be- 
tween father and mother, 
Robert Achilli as Hugh Bar- 
ton, the poor misunderstood 
son-in-law; and John Ros- 
sello as Dr. Maguire, who 
philisophically explained the 
inevitability of death to a 
very distraught Gant family. 

The purpose of a review is 
to offer constructive criticism 
and in this review the criti- 
cism takes two parts, both of 
which were evident in open- 
ing night and may not have 
been so on succeeding nights. 
One, Madame Elizabeth (Bar- 
bara Musgrave) seemed to be 
lacking something that could 
have been put into the role of 
such a lady(?). It seems as 
though she could have been 
just a bit more disagreeable 
in line with her character. 

The second weakness was 
Will Pentland (Bob Mcintosh). 
His character seemed to be 
rather non-descript. Perhaps 
if he had accentuated prissi- 
ness or cowardice as his per- 
sonality trait he would have 
been more acceptable. 

Congratulations should be 
extended for holders of the 
so-called minor roles for they 
filled them just to the right 
amount with no attempts at

Town Meeting Instituted; 
Activities Commission Named 

Sophomore president Bob Lee, discusses plans for investigating inter-collegiate sports 
at the Student Congress meeting. - Kulp P hoto 

Vol. XI, No. 6 


November 27, 1962 

By Peggy Blanchard 
Beachcomber Editor 

Two major innovations in 
Student Government politics 
were introduced at the first 
Student Congress meeting of 
the school year. 

Tom Wells, SGA president, 
in his opening remarks ex- 
plained the first major change 
- that of transforming the 
Student Congress into an in- 
formal Town Meeting. "The 
need for an informal and per- 
sonal contact with each stu- 
dent was the motive behind 
this new form of meeting", 
commented the president. 

The second proposal put 
forth in the meeting was the 
creation of an Activities 

The formation grew out of 
the problem of "involving the 
entire student body in various 
activities while they are re- 
ceiving an education." 

This commission was hand 
picked by the SGA Executive 
Council to work with various 
campus organizations. 

Wells, in commenting on 
the necessity of such a com- 
mission stated, "The purpose 

"Wishing Well Week" 
Proclaimed by SGA 


To pay due credit to the 
success of our "Wishing 
Well", the PBJC Student 
Government has declared 
Wishing Well Week which will 
extend from December 3 to 7. 

The response of the stu- 
dent body has made it pos- 
sible to consider the support 
of a war orphan. Approxi- 
mately $3 to $4 in pennies 
are collected or placed on 
account each week. This 
represents only a small part 
of the number of students 
that could participate. 

The SGA, as a coordina- 
tive body for student activi- 
ties, will launch an "all out 
campaign" to build interest 
and participation in the vot- 
ing to select a country and in 
the soliciting of more indi- 
vidual contributions. 

The Vets Club, appointed 
chairmen, will function in a 
promotion capacity during 
Wishing Well Week. Repre- 
sentatives from SNEA, Ma- 
ture Students, Tri Omega, 
Phi Rho Phi, Phi Da Di, and 

Circle "K" will work as a 
committee to insure main-

Kappa's Tap 
In Assembly 

A candlelight service 
marked the tapping of twenty- 
three students to pledge for 
Phi Theta Kappa, national 
junior college honorary fra- 
ternity. The service was 
part of the second all-school 
assembly, Monday, Novem- 
ber 12.

sembly was in the hands of 
the Music Department. The

November 27, 1962 

By Renny M. Connell 
Beachcomber Columnist 

Richard Milhous Nixon, Vice President of the United 
States for eight years and Republican Presidential candidate 
in 1960, has been defeated for the governorship of California. 
He was beaten by incumbent Democratic Governor Edmund 
(Pat) Brown. 

It was said by many political analysts that Nixon was 
fighting for his political life in California. They said if he 
were defeated it would be the end of his career. Well, he 
was defeated. 

Now, Richard Nixon, who barely missed being the Presi- 
dent of the United States, has been involuntarily retired. The 
man who was this country's most outstanding Vice President 
is gone. WHY? 

The race for governor of California was one of the most 
vigorous (meaning dirty in political language) in history. It 
would be false to say that there was one side that did not 
hit beinw the belt. 

There were several important issues in this election, but 
they were ignored. The issues were loyalty oaths for teachers 
and capital punishment. I happen to agree with Governor 
Brown on both of these issues. But I think that the voters of 
California do not. As a matter of fact, I think that they never 
even gave the issues a thought. The campaign was waged on 

Personally, I think that Governor Brown began the name- 
calling.- He knew that he must persuade the voters that 
Nixon was using the governorship as a stepping stone to 
the Presidency. He knew that he must convince them that 
Nixon was questioning Brown's loyalty. He knew that he 
must get them to believe that Nixon was a right-winger and a 
cold-hearted, ruthless politician. The voters were not pro- 
gressive enough to vote for Brown because they were against 
capital punishment or were opposed to teacher anti-communist 
oaths. They had to vote for something simple: a personality, 
an image. 

So the imagemakers went to work. And everybody knows 
that Nixon was not defeated by Brown. Nixon was defeated 
by Nixon. And now, the sacred rules of politics decree that 
Richard Nixon must be put out to pasture. 

I have always admired Mr. Nixon. There were times, 
when listening to him speak or reading his book, that I would 
blush at his apparent immodesty or insincerity. But I think 
that Nixon was an honest man. I think he meant the things 
he said. lie was not a "personality boy", as was John Ken- 
nedy. He was merely an able public servant who was, at 
times, misunderstood. 

In conceding defeat, Nixon blasted the press. He corn- 
plained about the Los Angeles Times. Well, I am not familiar 
with the Los Angeles Times, but I do know this: Nixon was 
a target for every left-winger and Communist in America. He 
was a target for such blindly partisan politicians as Harry 
Truman. He was a target for such sensation-seeking, distort- 
ing columnists as Drew Pearson. 

He was a target for such over-zealous, vengeful liberals 
as Herbert Block of the Washington Post. He was a target for 
the vicious racists of the South and the radical right-wingers. 
He was a target for sneers in the circles of Adlal Stevenson 
and even John P. Kennedy. 

So, the people of California have rendered their verdict: 
"Goodbye, Richard Nixon. Thanks for being a great Vice 
President for eight years. Thanks for suffering those indigni- 
ties In South America. Thanks for getting Alger Hiss, despite 
all the trouble it gave you. Thanks for behaving sensibly 
when Ike was on the brink of death. Thanks for standing up 
the Communists and taking all their abuse all these years. 
Thanks, but we've had enough of you. Like we said, thanks 
but no thanks."

Ivy League Illusion 

Given by Students 

Necessary or Not? 

By Thomas Carey 
'Comber Special 

You have probably noticed 
that some students at Palm 
Beach Junior College would 
prefer to pretend that they 
are attending an Ivy League 
college, such as Yale or 
Harvard. If you are a student, 
and have decided to appear 
"Ivy League", certain ac- 
tions can be recommended to 
further this illusion. 

It is important to qualify 
why you are attending Palm 
Beach Junior College. Sev- 
eral excuses may be used: 
"My father lost all his money 
in the recent failure of the 
Costa Rlcan rutabago crop" 
or "I applied a week too late 
for admission to Dartmouth, 
so I decided to kill a year out 
here and attend Dartmouth 
next year." "I haven't ruled 
Princeton out of my mind en- 
tirely however." 

Since it has been said 
that clothes make the man, a 
concerted effort should there-

wardrobe styled in traditional 
Ivy League fashion. 

An excellent, although 
rather costly method of 
achieving this aim, is to 
order your clothes from cloth- 
ing shops on the campuses of 
Ivy League colleges. In this 
way, the labels on your 
clothes would seem to indi- 
cate that you have visited 
the colleges themselves. 
Constantly make subtle ref- 
erences to the quality and 
stylishness of your wardrobe. 

You should take up pipe 
smoking in order to give an 
appearance of maturity and 
scholarly intellect. It would 
be wise to develop an in- 
terest in folk songs. An ex- 
cellent move along this line 
would be to learn to play a 
banjo or guitar, and to sing a 
few folk songs yourself. This 
fosters the acceptance of 
yourself as a musical non- 
conformist by your class- 

Every opportunity should 
be taken to degrade Junior

grades, be sure to attribute 
them to the lack of challenge 
to your mind and the inade- 
quate facilities for indepen-

references to your own pos-

books, such as Chinese Phil-

On Campus 


{Autlmr of "I Was a Teen-age Dwarf, "The Many 
Loves of Dobie Gillis", etc.) 


As we all know, conversation is terribly important on a date. 
When lulls in the conversation run longer than an hour or two, 
one's partner is inclined to grow logy— even sullen. But oc- 
casionally one finds it difficult to keep the talk going, especially 
when one is having a first date with one. What, then, does one do? 

If one is wise, one follows the brilliant example of Harlow 

Harlow Thurlow prepares. That is his simple secret. When 
Harlow is going to take out a new girl, he makes sure in advance 
that the conversation will not languish. Before the date, he 
goes to the library and reads all 24 volumes of the encyclopedia 
and transcribes their contents on his cuffs. Thus he makes sure 
that no matter what his date's interests are, he will have ample 
material to keep the conversation alive. 

Take, for example, Harlow's first date with Priscilia de 
Gasser, a fine, strapping, blue-eyed broth of a girl, lavishly 
constructed and rosy as the dawn. 

Harlow was, as always, prepared when he called for Priscilia, 
and, as always, he did not start to converse immediately. First 
he took her to dinner because, as everyone knows, it is useless 
to try to make conversation with an unfed coed. Her attention 
span is negligible. Also, her stomach rumbles so loud it is diffi- 

cult to make vourself heard. 

\i wMftmdtewh/' 

So he took her to a fine steak house where he stoked her with 
gobbets of Black Angus and mounds of French fries and thick- 
ets of escarole and battalions of petit fours. Then, at last, 
dinner was over and the waiter brought two finger bowls. 

"I hope you enjoyed your dinner, my dear,'' said Harlow, 
dipping into his finger bowl. 

"Oh, it was grandy-dandy !" said Priscilia. "Now let's go 
someplace for ribs.' : 

"Later, perhaps," said Harlow. "But right now, I thought 
we might have a conversation." 

"Oh. goody, goody, two-shoes!" cried Priscilia. "I been 
looking everywhere for a boy who can carry on a intelligent 

"Your search is ended, madam,"' said Harlow, and pulled 
back his sleeves and looked at his cuffs to pick a likely topic to 
start the conversation. ,,, _ . 

Oh, woe! Oh, laekaday! Those cuffs on which Harlow had 
painstakingly transcribed so many facts— those cuffs on which 
he had noted such diverse and fascinating information— those 
cuffs, I say, were nothing now but a big, blue blur ! For Harlow 
—poor Harlow!— splashing around in the finger bowl, had gotten 
his cuffs wet and the ink had run and not one word was legible! 
And Harlow— poor Harlow!— looked upon his cuffs and broke 
out in a night sweat and fell dumb. 

"I must say," said Priscilia after several silent hours, 'that 
vou are a verv dull fellow. I'm leaving." 
* With that "she flounced away and poor Harlow was too 
crushed to protest. Sadly he sat and sadly lit a cigarette.^ 

All of a sudden Priscilia came rushing back. "Wis that," she 
asked, "a Marlboro you just lit?" 

"Yes," said Harlow. . , , 

"Then vou are not a dull fellow," she cned, and sprang into 
his lap "You are bright! Anybody is bright to smoke such a 
perfect joy of a cigarette as Marlboro which is just chock full 
of rummy flavor, which has a Selectrate filter which comes in a 
soft pack that is really soft, and a Flip-Top Box that really ftps, 
and which can be bought wherever cigarettes are sold m ail fifty

"Okay," said Harlow, and did, and was

To Say the Very Least 
Life of Pledgee Rigorous 

Remember when all the 
dignified, social club mem- 
bers endured and enjoyed the 
grueling life of a lowly pled- 
gee? On campuses all over 
the country, pledging has be- 
come the riotous aftermath of 
the hectic, rushing season; 
Palm Beach Junior College 
was, by no means, exempt 
from this chaos. 

The rigorous training which 
the eager pledges received 
during this time may have 
prepared them for any stra- 
tegic personal, campus, or 
national crisis. 

They learned to plan ahead 
and stock a more than ample 
supply of necessary provi- 
sions •-- gum and matches. 
This also entailed compre- 
hending space and distance, 
as they crammed a dozen 
packs of these essentials 
into back pockets and hand- 

PBJC trained better citi- 
zens with its pledges. Is 
there a better way to learn 
the benefits of cleanliness 
than by patiently scouring 
campus benches or social 
club blocks with the cleanser 
and toothbrush of your choice. 
The many phases of cook- 
ery were applied in this train- 
ing period. Peter Pledge 

learned the potential of pep- 
per by pushing a peppered 
pickel. This may seem like a 
tongue-twister, but, in reality, 
the pledge did push a pepper- 
ed pickel with his nose down 
a lounge table. 

Story by Chris Teiine 
Photos by Chuck Kulp 

Many students may have 
thought book carrying left 
with grade school days, but 
to our "abused" pledge it 
was only too real. He found 
himself carrying a wide as- 
sortment of school books, li- 
brary books, and magazines 
often with a gross weight of 
twenty pounds. 

To help publicize and laud 
the Sadie Hawkins season, 
the female members of the 
pledging set donned freckles, 
wigs and gunny sacks and 
trotted the campus for an 
entire day advertising their 
newly created feminine 
charms and the coming dance. 

With the pledging season 
running into the home stretch, 
the weary pledges can breath 
easier, disturbed only oc- 
casionally by reliving a few 
agonizing moments of rat 
court when he tried not to 
laugh at the sad plight of 
others or to moan at his own.

PBJC student Hope Martin 
has won first place in the 
district "Make It With Wool" 
sewing contest which was

Fabulous prizes are being 

offered to the winners of the

The Library Claims Survivors of Mid-Term Exams 
Student Lounge - Now Known as Heartbreak Hote 

By Bonnie McChesney 
Beachcomber Staff 

About this time every 
year, the library increases 
its population and the student 
lounge, filled with moans and 
groans, becomes Heartbreak 
Hotel for the weary and the 

Yes, you guessed it — 
grades have come out and 
parents have passed out; 
"How could MY son make 
such MISERABLE grades?" 
or else. "I told you that boy 
you go with would ruin your 
academic drive!" 

Then too of course, there 
are parents who boast at the 
golf course or at their daily 
bridge game, "MY baby is SO 
intelligent! Imagine! A 4.0 
average! Of course, when I 
was in school, I too ... " 

But for the most part, let 
us consider the less fortunate 
group of students as they tell 
their cohorts and colleagues 
of their great misfortune . . . 
(which means, their many 
D's and F's on their quarter 

One of the types you may 
encounter is, "Mr. I flunked 
that course because my 
teacher hates me". 

This is the type of guy 
that tells each and everyone 
he knows, so-and so teacher 
is a real JERK! He doesn't 
know how to teach, how to 
talk right, has aggravating 
mannerisms, and if you 
should ask a question, he 
never answers it. He plays 
"favorites" to the A stu- 
dents and nine times out of 
ten, the person who is de- 
grading him, is not included 
among these people. 

This guy will tell every 
unknowing person not to sign 
up for his class — ever — or 

he too will fail. Should some- 
one speak up in behalf of the 
teacher, he is immediately 
pounced upon, severly criti- 
cised, and loses a friend. 

Another type you may hear 
is Miss "I was an 'A' student 
in high schooll!" "This 
school is just too hard! I 
knew I should have gone to 
that school up north!" 

At this point, she proceeds 
to tell you what a difficult 
time she has had in trying to 
remember all that is required 
of her and how the courses 
should be simplified. "Do 
you know that I had to read a 
chapter with 21 pages!? And 
all in ONE night!" You don't 
dare ask her when she started 
to read the chapter for fear 
that you may end up with the 
pudding she is eating in your 
lap, and a most embarrassing 
scene may occur. 

Another type is perhaps 
the most common. Mr. "Boy!! 
Did my old man ever hit the 
roof!" In this sad situation, 
the parents got to the mail 
box first, saw the letter, in- 
quired as to the contents and, 

under pressure, forced hi 
"hand it over".

Dogpatch Finds 

Daisy Mae Captures 
Li'l Abner at Dance 

By Bonnie McChesney 
Beachcomber Staff 

Cheryl Ellison was crown- 
ed Daisy Mae and Andy Un- 
derwood was crowned Li'l 
Abner at the annual Sadie 
Hawkins Day Dance, given 
by the Co-Ed Board, Satur- 
day, November 10. 

About nine o'clock p.m., 
students came appropriately 
dressed to the Palm Beach 
Junior College gym and danc- 
ed amid "Dogpatch" sur- 
roundings, while they listen- 
ed to the accents. 

If a prize were given for 
the best costume, I certainly 
would not like to be a judge, 
because there were many 
unique, as well as hilarious, 
costumes everywhere you 
looked. Teeth were blacken- 
ed out, girls had pipes in 
their mouth, and the boys 
looked as if they had come 
right from Dogpatch - patches 
and all. It was the only time 
that the girls had the chance 
to ask the boys out for a 
change, and obviously, they 
enjoyed it immensely. 

About 10:30, Gay Hoover, 
chairman of the dance, called 
the representatives to the 
front. Competing for the 
crowns were: Eileen Henn,

creatures, named "Alpha" 
and "Fi" are Johnny Quinn 
and Steve Deason. 

"Alpha", the larger of the 
two rodents, was presented 
to Quinn by his little brother, 
Emerson Ingram. Deason re- 
ceived his pet from Pledge 
President Ray Edwards. It 
has been suggested that the 
pin-eyed creatures be taken 
to the Alpha Pi parties to 
amuse those who come with-

The Tri Omega pledges 
did their version, or rather 
sang. "You Can't Get a Man 
With a Gun"; Philo pledges 
sang, "I'm the Girl from 
Wouverton Mountain"; and 
Thi Del pledges did a skit 
entitled, "Palm Beach Junior 
College in 2062". Following 
the entertainment, the king 
and queen lead off the dance. 

The entire student body 
was allowed to vote for Daisy 
Mae and Li'l Abner at liji per 
vote. The proceeds, which 
totaled almost $375.0 0, will 
go into a scholarship given 
by the Co-Ed Board. Miss 
Dixon, advisor to the Board, 
said the scholarship will be 
awarded to a student at Palm 
Beach Junior College. 

Tri Omega was in charge 
of refreshments and Thi Del, 
Philo and TriOmega made the 
decorations for the dance. At 
midnight, and many dances 
later, everyone began to 
"clear out" and many choice 
comments were heard - "That

Beginning with this issue, this column will be a regular 
part of the sport's section. All the smaller bits of informa- 
tion, and the sports schedules for future events, will be 
placed in this column. 

The Sport's section, along with any other part of this 
paper, is for the benefit of the students and faculty. If a 
student or faculty member has a gripe about something, let 
him write it up in the form of a letter and address it to me 

He can remain anonymous, if he so wishes. I will then 
publish his letter (if printable) in the column and try to 
answer it, if I can. 

Similarly if he has some praise for the sport's department, 

he is welcome to submit that as well. I will also appreciate 

^ any comments on this column. Any letters to this department 

f can be dropped into the sport's basket in the Beachcomber 

office. We're right next to the Student Lounge, so it certainly 

isn't out of anybody's way. 

For the shuffle-board or ping-pong enthusiasts', here is 
your chance to get together. This January 3, there will be a 
combination ping-pong, shuffle-board tournament ; in the gym 
All men interested should consult the I.R. Bulletin boards for 
further information on the tournament. 


Congratulations are due to the Misfits for winning the 

Co-Ed vol eyball championship. They made a fine f showing ^in 

the playoffs. The Misfits Too gave them a tough fight all the 

way through the season, but the Misfits finally pulled through. 

The Woman's Archery Tourney will begin today at 4 p.m. 
If you able-bodied men want to see just how deadly a woman 
can get, hop on over and take a look.

Intramural soccer calls for brains, brawn, ballet and

Importance of l-R Meetings 

The I.R. Board would like 
to clarify the meaning of or- 
ganizational meetings. They 
do what the name implies - 

It tries to co-ordinate and 
communicate to each indivi- 
dual team, the how, when, 
where and why for the sports 
activity in each season. They 
answer many things and set 
up the playing schedules, 
clearing up the rules, answer- 
ing all questions of partici- 
pants and their team captains 
or their representatives. 

Meetings are attended 
either by a team captain from 
each team or one of its rep- 

resentatives. The penalty for 
not having a team representa- 
tive at the meeting is expul- 
sion from play. 

Phi Da Di Defeats Chi Sig 

Clark Hammeal command- 
ingly took charge of Phi Da 
Di's forces and led them to a 
4 - 2 triumph over Chi Sig in 
men's soccer. Chi Sig got 
into the scoring column first 
as Art Azzaro kicked a goal 
to put Chi Sig ahead 1 - 0. 

At this point Clark Ham- 
meal put the game out of 
reach as he scored two con- 
secutive penalty kicks and 
one goal to give Phi Da Di a 
3 I 1 lead. Before Chi Sig 
knew what was happening 
Charlie Kairalla scored a 
goal to wrap up the victory. 

Chi Sig did manage to 
score one more futile goal as 
Jay Groover kicked a penalty 
kick to make trie score 4 - 2. 
That was the final score as 
Phi Da Di proved too much 
for Chi Sig. 

Men's Basketball Starts 

Starting November 26, the 
gym will echo with the sounds 
of basketballs as the men's 
intramural basketball league 
starts play. Fourteen teams 
have already signed up for 

Three games a day will be 
played at 6, 7 and 8 p.m. re- 
spectively on Tuesdays, 
Wednesdays and Thursdays. 
The teams will be divided in- 
to 4 leagues; Social, Unso- 
cial, National and Big Three. 
Each team will play every 
opponent in their respective 
league with first and second 
place teams qualifying for 
the single-elimination tourna- 

Men are required to wear 
either bermuda shorts or a 
P.E. uniform. Tennis shoes 
must be worn. No street 
clothes or bathing suits are 
permitted under any circum- 

The name Misfits must 
have a magical quality to it 
for they ended the regular 
season in soccer with a 6-0 
record. Both Phi Da Di and 
the Knights tied for second 
place with 4-2 records. 

Fourth place went to Chi 
Sig with a 3-3 record. Other 
teams participating were 
Circle K, Alpha Fi, and TKL. 
In the play-offs, the Mis- 
fits play the Chi Sigs, and 
the Knights play Phi Da Di, 
with the winning teams meet- 
ing for the final champion- 
ship to decide the winners. 

In the last game played, 
Phi Da Di beat Chi Sig, 4-2. 
Chuck Hammeal scored 3 of 
Phi Da Di's 4 points, while 
both Jay Groovis and Art Az- 
zaro each scored 1 pt. for 
Chi Sig. Bill Green and Fred 
Mascara played good defen- 
sive ball for Phi Da Di, while 
Terry Coxe and Doug De Vos 
played good ball for Chi Sig. 
The Misfits defeated the 
Knights in their final pre- 
play-off game 4-2. Don Woods 
scored three points for the 
Misfits, while Terry Darley 
scored the lone point for the 

A good defensive game 
was the one in which the Mis- 
fits beat Chi Sig 1-0. Chi Sig 
played very good defensive 
ball, with Hugh Brady lead- 
ing their defense. 

This was a blow to the 
Misfits, who had just defeat- 
ed Phi Da Di 6-1, the pre- 
ceeding day. In that game, 
Don Woods scored 3 points, 
and Larry Reidinger scored 2 
points, while for Phi Da Di, 
Chuck Hammeal kicked their 
lone point in the last few 
seconds of play. 

The Misfits have shown 
good offensive strategies in 
all of their games and except 
for the Chi Sig game,, have 
beaten all of their opponents 
by good scores. 

Don Woods led the offen- 
sive plays, while Cory Mc 
Guire held his team's de- 
fense tight.

Dollars for Scholars 
Has Rapid Response 

By Steve West 
Beachcomber Staff 

The "Dollars for Schol- 
ars" campaign which began 
Monday, November 12, has 
been progressing very rapidly 
and successfully. Over 6000 
envelopes have been sent out 
and many have already been 
returned some containing 
more than the requested $1.00 

This is an indication of 
the many friends who wish to 
help PBJC through this 

There are three phases of 
preparing these envelopes for 
mailing. Mrs. Sullivan and 
Mr. Mitchell, IBM operators 
on the office staff, have sup- 
plied addresses of all parents 
of present students. The Palm 
Beach Junior College Alumni 
Association supplied the 
names of former junior col- 
lege students. Mrs. Oker- 
strum's typing classes typed 
the names and addresses on 
the envelopes. 

Then independent girls 
folded, sealed and placed 
stamps on them. When ques- 
tioned as to how they liked 
this work, they said, "There's 
a lotta licking going on." 

The prepared envelopes 
were then sorted and divided 
into two sections, one sec- 
tion for local areas and the 
other for out-of-town. The 
college is trying new ideas 
every year to increase the 
efficiency of handling of this 
annual campaign.

"Students in White" was the latest production in the 
Palm Beach Junior College "Showcase" series to appear on 

The play which was shown at 1:30 p.m. on WPTV, Chan-

and decision in the life of a student nurse. 
The student nurse, played

the waist down. The nurse 
had to start the patient, 
played by Al Seibert, award 
winning player, on a rehabil-

The nurse could not prom- 
ise that the rehabilitation

The patient, a door to

In a final effort, she per-

The Palm Beach Junior 
College choir and band had 
the privilege and honor of en- 
tertaining at the groundbreak- 
ing ceremony for the Florida 
Atlantic University in Boca 

The ceremony was held on 
Saturday, December 8 at 2:00 
p.m. P.B.J.C. was the host 
junior college at the ground- 
breaking. Palm Beach Junior. 
College was chosen for this 
honor because it has excep- 
tionally good music and chor- 
al department. It is also the 
closest junior college to the 
Florida Atlantic University 
and because it is very likely 
that many graduates will con- 
tinue their education at this 

The Florida Atlantic Uni- 
versity will be completed in 
1964, therefore, the freshmen 
now attending P.'B.J.C. will 
have an opportunity to attend 
it after graduation. 

Other junior colleges that 
attended! were Broward, Dade, 
Indian River, and Brevard.

the picnic was set for the 
Monday after Easter with the 
location to be determined by

One hotly discussed item 
was the possibility of de-

necessity of such a thing. On 
a close vote, the class decid- 
ed to appoint a committee to 
discuss the feasibility of such 
a move and its consequences,

What Ever Happened to 
"Dollars for Scholars"! 

The "Dollars for Scholars" campaign has produced sad 
results. The amount of money sent in has been far below that 
which was expected. Self-addressed envelopes have been 
mailed to all alumni, parents of present students, teachers in 
the county system, parents of high school seniors who have 
been visiting the college, and to addresses supplied by stu- 
dents and friends of the college. 

What happened to them? Some have been returned with the 
requested $1 enclosed. Some have been returned with more. 
Those people who have sent back their envelopes with $5 or 
more have received personal letters of thanks from Dean Paul 
J. Glenn. But many have not been returned at all. Have your 
parents returned theirs? 

The money returned in these envelopes will be used for 
Work Scholarships for students to work on campus in such 
areas as the science labs, the library, the physical education 
department, the technical area, the music department, the 
home economics department, the art and nursing departments, 
the BEACHCOMBER, and the Galleon. 

All of these areas are in need of student help, and there 
are also many students who need financial help to continue 
their education. 

Work Scholarships greatly benefit students who need them. 
The recipients of these scholarships can help in their depart- 
ments, learning while they are earning. You may receive one 
of these scholarships next semester, we urge your parents to 
give a little and help some student a lot. — Steve West

The duty of this represen- 
tative would be to report 
events to the paper by either: 
(1) writing them out for them- 
selves, (2) listing them in 
order, or (3) informing the 
paper of the event in writing, 
for proper coverage. 

If methods 1 or 2 are se- 
lected for use the journalistic 
questions of who, what, why, 
where, when, and how should 
be answered.

your benefit, because with 
the limited staff the paper

each event is not assured. It

Our student body has been 
engaged in many varied ac- 
tivities during this past 
month. As president of the 
Student Government Associa- 
tion, I have been asked how I 
personally feel in regard to 
the paper's write-up on this 
issue or activity and on so 
many other bulletin announce- 
ments and various campaigns. 
I should like to comment on 
the following: 

In the previous issue of 
the BEACHCOMBER the pap- 
er featured a brilliant satiri- 
cal story entitled "ivy Lea- 
gue Illusion Given by Stu- 
dents Necessary or Not?" 
Visiting our campus during 
that same week were Maurice 
Frank, owner of (he Holiday 
Inn and resource developer 
and Kellogg's Foundation 
personnel, not to mention 
deans and councilors from 
both U of F and FSU, all of 
these groups commented to 
Or. Manor, myself, and to the 
administration on the "well 
dressed" student on our 

Several of these groups 
had recently completed tours 
of several other junior col- 
lege campuses. I personally 
spoke to several of the dele- 
gations and was proud to re- 
ceive their comments. It has 
also been called to my atten- 
• tion through association with 
many of the area high school 
administrations that they feel 
their own students are being 
influenced in their style and 
degree of dress, be it wrap- 
around madras skirt or "Ivy" 
blazer and tie, by the older 
: junior college students in the 

We feel that such com- 
ments on our students dress 
and attitude behavior should 
not go unnoticed by the de- 
serving student populus. 

In regard to the Sophomore 
class assembly meeting, the 
sophomores turned out in vast 
numbers, thus we shall deem 
it a success. During the en- 
tertainment and business 
session of the meeting the 
assembly reacted in a manner 
very becoming our class, for

A wasted hour was spent 
in attending the farcical Sop- 
homore Class meeting, Wed- 
nesday, December 3. 

From its very inception it 
was destined for failure, as 
the Four F's (for failures), 
misdirected their talents and 
became extremely distasteful 
in their presentations. Ribald 
jokes are always out of place 
in any such gathering where 
serious business is to be 

This short-coming may 
have been overlooked if class 
president Bob Lee had been 
able to keep the business(?) 
meeting under control ~ he 
wasn't able to, however. 

A complete disregard for 
the rules of order and for the 
dignity and feelings of the 
Sophomore class were mani- 
fested in Mr. Lee's actions. 

Bill Green, class vice- 
president, followed along in 
Lee's footsteps and made 
himself obnoxious also. 

The administration of this 
school was generous enough 
to grant the Sophomore Class 
the priviledge of having an 
hour assembly, the hour was 
misused! Will they again al- 
low a class this priviledge? 

One wonders.

Dear Dr. Manor and Staff: 

We, the Senior Class of 
Riviera Beach High, wish to 
thank you for inviting us to 
your Junior College and for 
the hospitality which you 
showed us. 

We feel that the trip great- 
ly orientated us on coUege 

Again we wish to express 
our appreciation for your time 
and trouble. 

Carolyn DeSmidt 
Senior Class Secretary 


Dear Miss Blanchard, 

First of all I would like to 
compliment you on the fine 
job you and your co-workers 
are doing on the BEACH- 

I believe that your new 
addition "News Around 
Campus" is a worthy addi- 
tion, but may I make a sug- 
gestion? Why not include 
news of where and when fac- 
ulty members are going to 
speak BEFORE they appear, 
so that those of us who might 
like to see and hear them will 
know this in advance? 

Name Withheld 
By Request 

Editor's Note: The staff 
would be happy to print an- 
nouncements of such speak- 
ing engagements in advance 
and is, at this time, asking 
the faculty to notify the paper 
in advance so announcements 
of this sort may be made.

Peace Corps 

Are Needed At "Christmas Fantasy" 

Junior college graduates 
with their wide variety of 
skills are particularly valu- 
able to community develop- 
ment projects. More than ten 
per cent of the Peace Corps 
Volunteers now in training 
and overseas are graduates 
of junior colleges. The 
Peace Corps is using their 
skills and training in almost 
every project and in every 
country where it operates. 

For any American citizen 
over 18, the Peace Corps is 
the ideal opportunity to pur- 
sue interests and aptitudes. 
It provides the community de- 
velopment projects that cover 
infinite career possibilities. 
Peace Corps Volunteers are 
now participating personally 
in programs which work on 
the village level. They teach 
the villagers to organize and 
develop all the basic re- 
sources available to them. 

There is no upper age 
limit for volunteers. Married 
persons with no dependent 
children are eligible if both 
can do jobs as Volunteers. 
All Volunteers must be in 
excellent physical and mental 
health, emotionally mature 
and upright in their personal 

Volunteers go through a 
comprehensive training pro- 
gram designed to prepare them 
for the great variety of situ- 
ations that may some day 
face them. 

During this training period 
all expenses will be paid. 
Volunteers receive a termin- 
ation payment equal to ?15 
for each month of service. 

Volunteers receive 30 days 
leave and disability benefits. 
Military obligations are not 
met through the Corps but 
may be deferred. 

All interested students

On December 8, the Tri 
Omega Social Club held their 
annual Christmas formal, 
"Christmas Fantasy", in the 
Poinciana Room at the Palm 
Beach Towers. The mood 
was established by John Nun- 
amaker's Quartet, who played 
continuous music from 9 p.m. 
to 1 a.m. The decorations, a 
Santa Claus, with fireplace 
and Christmas tree, added to 
the Christmas spirit. 

During the intermission, 
Bonnie MeChesney, president 
of Tri Omega, introduced the 
old and new members and 
their dates, followed by Burt 
Henn, pianist and singer, who 
furnished some entertainment. 
The main highlight of the 
evening was the crowning of 
"Mr. Wonderful" who was 
Steve Deason of Alpha Fi. 
Bob Scott of TKL and Larry 
Shiller, were the other candi- 
dates chosen by the Tri Ome- 
ga members. 

Gifts were presented to 
each, foUowing the announce- 
ment. Admission to the dance 
was a toy - old or new - 
which will be given to the 
orphans and other such or- 
ganizations in helping them 
to have a better and happier 

Over the Thanksgiving 
Holidays, Tri Omega pledges 
and members had a car wash 
at Soden's Texaco Station, 
November 23, from 10 a.m. to 

4 p.m. 

Pledges took great delight 
in their annual "Turn About 
Day" on November 26. This 
is the time when the pledges 
can turn-the- tables, so to 

speak, on the members who 
have given them orders since 
pledging began. Members of 
Tri Omega were seen lighting 
the pledges' cigarettes, get- 
ting their lunches, dancing 
the "chicken scratch", and 
various other sundry things 
the pledges happened to think 
of at the time. 

That same evening how- 
ever, pledges had meir pre- 
initiation night on the streets 
of West Palm Beach. Pledges 
donne d ' ' crazy ' ' c ostu mes , 
and the members took real 
pleasure in seeing them roU 
eggs down the street with 
their noses and listening to 
them sing Christmas carols. 

The Tri Omega members 
and pledges wish to extend 
to all of you, a very Merry 
Christmas and hope that you 
have a safe and pleasant 
Christmas holiday.

Here is an on-the-spot sports report. It concerns the intra- 
mural basketball games held on Thursday, November 29. 

In the first game, the Hurricanes beat the Beavers, 56-34. 
Bill Wendt scored 18 points for the Hurricanes, Terry Hess 14, 
and Paul Joseph, 8. 

Dave Hull scored 16 for the Beavers, and Bob Taurielb, 12. 
The Hurricanes held a good lead from the start, and a fourth 
quarter rally by the Beavers was too late to do any good. 

Next, the Misfits beat Cir- 
cle K 69-17. Jim Hinton's 24 
points for the Misfits, beat 
the total score of Circle-K. 
Dave Lee backed him up with 
14, Paul Peidinger with 11, 
and Rave Pettigrew 8. 

For Circle-K, Carl Watson 
had 5, Bob Lee and Jim Mob- 
ley each had 3. Here the Mis-

Festive Season 

Coat ._.-._ 




On Campus 


(Author of "I Was a Teen-age Dwarf", "The Many 
Loves of Dobie Gillis", etc.) 


When you think of Christmas gifts you naturally think of 
Marlboro cigarettes, leading seller in flip-top box in all fifty 
states— and if we annex Wales, in all fifty-one— and if we an- 
nex Lapland— in all fifty-two. This talk about annexing Wales 
and Lapland is, incidentally, not just idle speculation. Great 
Britain wants to trade Wales to the United States for a desert. 
Great Britain needs a desert desperately on account of the 
tourist trade. Tourists are always coming up to the Prime 
Minister or the Lord Privy Seal or like that and saying, "I'm 
not knocking your country, mind you. It's very quaint and 
picturesque, etc. what with Buckingham Palace and Bovril 
and Scotland Yard, etc., but where's your desert?" (Before I 
forget, let me point out that Scotland Yard, Britain's plain- 
clothes police branch, was named after Wally Scotland unci 
Fred Yard who invented plain clothes. The American plain- 
clothes force is called the FBI after Frank B. Inohcliff, who 
invented fingerprints. Before Mr. Inchcliff's invention, every- 
body's fingers were absolutely glassy smooth. This, as you 
may imagine, played hob with the identification of newborn 
babies in hospitals. From 1791 until 1904 no American parent 


- 4om of wrtllMOtret> 

ever brought home the right baby from the hospital. Thi] 
later became known as the Black Tom Explosion.) 

But I digress. England, I was saying, wants to trade Walei 
for a desert. Sweden wants to trade Lapland for Frank B. Inch 
cliff. The reason is that Swedes to this day still don't liav< 
fingerprints. As a result, identification of babies in Swedisl 
hospitals is so haphazard that Swedes flatly refuse to bring thei 
babies home. There are, at present, nearly a half-bill ion un 
claimed babies in Swedish hospitals— some of them well ove 
eight}' years old. 

But I digress. We were speaking of Christmas gifts whi c ] 
naturally put us in mind of Marlboro cigarettes. What cc>ul< 
be more welcome at Christinas time than Marlboro's flavoi 
Marlboro's soft pack, Marlboro's flip-top box? What inclej©, 
would be more welcome at any time of year— winter or .sn In 
mer, rain or shine, night or day? Any time, any season, whe 
you light a Marlboro you can always be certain that you wil 
get the same mild, flavorful, completely comfortable siriol^ 

There are, of course, other things you can give for Christr*ia 
besides Marlboro cigarettes. If, for example, you are lookin 
for something to give a music lover, let me call to your attcj r 

tion a revolutionary new development in phonographs tli 

Low-fi phonograph. The Low-fi, product of years of pati en 
research, has so little fidelity to the record you put on it that \ 
for instance, you put "Stardust" on the turntable, "Melanehol 
Baby" will come out. This is an especially welcome gift f c 
people who have grown tired of "Stardust". 

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night. 


The makers of Marlboro cigarettes, who take pleasure ■ 
bringing you this column throughout the school year, i^i 
to join old Max in extending greetings of the Season.

Dear Virginia 

Editor's note: This letter, an 
answer to a little girl's question 
was first published in the New 
York Sun in 1897 and has been 
reprinted thousands of times. The 
writer has also made many 
television appearances. 

We believe that the article will 
reaffirm your belief in Santa 
Clnus and the Christmas Spirit. 

Dear Editor: I am eight years 
old. Some of my little friends 
say there is no Santa Claus. 
Papa says, "If you see it in 
The Sun, it's so." Please tell 
me the truth, is there a Santa 

Virginia O'Hanlor. 

115 West 95th Street. 

"Virginia, your little friends are 
wrong. They have been affected 
by the skepticism of a skeptical 
age. They do not believe except 
see. They think that nothing can 
be which is not comprehended by 
their little minds. All minds, Vir- 
ginia, whether they be men's or 
children's, are little. In this great 
universe of ours man is a mere 
insect, an ant, in his intellect, "as 
compared with the boundless 
world about him, as measured by 
the intelligence capable of grasp- 
ing the whole truth and knowl- 

"Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa 
Claus. He exists as certainly as 

love and generosity and devotion 
exist, and you know that they 
abound and give to our life its 
highest beauty and joy. Alas! how 
dreary would be the world if there 
were no Santa Claus. It would 
be as dreary as if there were no 
Virginias. There would be no 
childish faith then, no poetry, no 
romance, t" make tolerable this 
existence. We should have no en- 
joyment, except in sense and 
sight. The eternal light with 
which childhood fills the world 
would be extinguished. 

"Not believe in Santa Claus! 
You might as well not believe in 
fairies! You might get your papa 
to hire men to watch in all the

Media Board Accepting 
Material For Review 

The editorial board of Media 
will soon begin reviewing ma- 
terial submitted by Palm Beach 
Junior College students for the 
1962-63 issue. 

Many students attending the 
college have shown their ability 
to produce good prose and poetry. 
However, many others, who can 
and should contribute material, 
have failed to do so. 

It has been brought to our at- 
tention that some students are not 
familiar with the objectives of 
Media. The primary objectives of 
Media is to provide an opportu- 
nity for P.B.J.C. students to ex- 
press themselves through prose, 
poetry and art. 

Selections published in the mag- 
azines are those judged to be the 
best of student contributions. Se- 
lections published in the magazine 
are those judged to be the best of 
student contributions. Selections 
are typed and submitted without 
names to the editorial board. 
Names should be placed on a 
separate paper (preferably a 3x5 
card) and attached to submitted 
material. Each contribution is in 
dividually evaluated on the basis 

of originality, thought, and meth- 
od of presentation. 

Selections may be delivered 
to P. William McDaniel in fac- 
ulty office AD-3. The deadline 
for all material has been tenta- 
tively set for January 31, 1963.

Dr. Manor Extends 
Holiday Greetings 

I hope that as we approach the happy and joyous Holiday 
Season each of us will find time to reflect again on the true 
meaning of Christmas. It is not only the giving of gifts which makes 
Christmas so heart-warming but the giving of ourselves. Someone 
once said that if we could have the Christmas Spirit for twelve 
months a year most of our social and political problems would 
van'sh like the frost in a warm morning sun. 

May God help each of us to carry this Spirit throughout the 
year until wo Indeed have "Peace on Earth and Good Will To- 
ward Men." 

Have a very Merry Christmas and 

Best wishes for the New Year. 

Harold C. Manor 

Editor's Notebook 

A Christmas Prayer 

May *he Christ from whom this season derived its first mean- 
ing not be forgotten in all our betinseled celebrations. May the 
real reason for the giving of Christmas gl-fls not be overshadowed 
by fat Santa Clauses with filled sleighs. 

May the star which shone down upon the Babe so long ago, 
shine down on us today and illumine our paths when they become 
dark and dangerous. Let lis look to it to guide us to our ultimate 
goals and follow it always. 

May the cry of the angels, that first Christmas night, oi 
Peace to Men of Earth, be the cry of us all in these times of peril. 

May we join our voices in a song of joy and praise in pro- 
claiming the birth of the Christ Child in this joyous Holiday Season. 

May the Lord bless you in this time of year and grant you 
a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

It is customary for the presi- 
dent of the Student Government 
Association to extend his fellow 
students a traditional Holiday 
Greeting. I am sure this has in 
the past, on occasion, just been 
the "Thing to do". However, as 
your President, I should like this 
message at Christmas time to 

be presented and received in a 
very special light. 

The holidays are upon us and 
we leave Palm Beach Junior Col- 
lege for, what wo hope will lie, 
one of the most pleasant and fun- 
filled times of our college career 
—Christmas vacation. This holi- 
day will mean a lime for Christ-

It Was The Night 
Before Christmas-But 

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the pad 

Not a hipster was swinging, not even old Dad: 

The chimney was draped in that stocking routine, 

In hopes that "The Fat Man" would soon make the scene; 

The wee cats were laid out all cool in their beds, 

While sounds of the "Sugar Blues" wailed through their heads; 

And my chick in her "Castro," and me on the floor, 

Had just conked out cold for a forty-wink snore, 

When out of left field there came on such a ribble, 

I broke from my sack to see what was this dribble! 

To the glasspane I cut like a B-Western movie, 

Tuned in on the action, and Man was it groovy! 

The moon and the snow were, like flaking together, 

Which made the scene rock in the Day People weather 

When, what to these peepers should come on real queer, 

But a real crazy sleigh, and eight swinging reindeer, 

With a hopped-up old driver on some frantic kick, 

I was hip in a flash that it must be St. Nick. 

Much faster then Bird flew, this group was no drag, 

And he rocked, and rolled, and he pegged them by tag: 

"Like, Dasher! Like, Dancer! Like, Prancer and Vixen! 

Go, Comet! Go, Cupid! Go, Donder and Blitzen! 

Fly over the shack. Make it over the pad! 

Now cut out, Man! Cut out, Man! Cut out like mad! 

As sidemen in combos pick up as they stomp, 

When they swing with the beat of a Dixieland Romp! 

So up to the top of my bandstand they flew, 

With the sleighful of loot, and St. Nicholas, too. 

And then, in a quick riff, I dug on the roof. 

The jumpin' and Jivin' of each swinging hoof. 

As I pulled in my noggin, and turned around fast, 

Down the chimney come Nick like a hot trumpet blast. 

He was wrapped up to kill, Man, a real kookie dresser! 

And his rags were, like, way out". Pops, He was a gasser! 

A sack full cf goodies hung down to his tail, 

And he looked like a postman with "Basie's" fan mail. 

His lids^Man, they sizzled. His dimples were smiles! 

His cheeks were like "Dizzy's," his bead was like "Miles." 

His puckered-up mouth was, like, blowing flat E, 

And his chin hid behind a real crazy goatee! 

The tip of a butt he had snagged in his choppers, 

And he took a few drags just like all cool Be-boppers; 

He had a weird face, and a solid reet middle 

That bounced when he cracked, like a gutbucket fiddle! 

He was shaking with moat, meaning he was no square, 

And I flipped, cause I'd always thought he was a longhair. 

But the glint in his eye and the beat in his touch 

Soon gave me the message this cat was too much 

He blew not a sound, but skipped right to his gig, 

And stashed all the stockings, then came on real big, 

And flashing a sign, like that old "Schnozzle" bit, 

And playing it hip, up the chimney he split; 

He flew to his skids, to his group blew a lick, 

And they cut out real cool, on a wild frenzied kick. 

But I heard him sound off, with a razz-a-ma-tazz; 

"A cool Christmas to all, and like, all of that jazz! "

"Letter To Santa" 

Bet you'll get a great big kick, 
From this letter to Saint Nick, 
Written by the cutest little girl 
This is what she wrote, Quote: 

Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus, 

I am writing you because, 

I'm a little girl, you see 

An' need someone to play with me. 

I still have my last year's doll, 

So I don't need another, 

But if it's all the same to you, 

Bring me a BABY BROTHER. 
I have everything I need, 
Dresses, games an" toys, 
But Santa listen to me please, 
We are really short on boys. 
Santa Clans, dear Santa Ciaus, 
Don't tell Dad, or Mother, 
For I want them to be surprised, 
When they see my BAEY BROTHER.

Christmas In Florida 
Is Like First One 

The visitor sadly shook his head 

As he basked in the tropical sun. 
"Call this Christmas?" to us he said, 

"Well, not where I come from! " 
"Christmas needs snow and ice and cold, 
And the sound of the sleighbells' ring: 
As for me, I can't be sold 

On weather that feels like spring." 
We looked at him and then we smiled 

As he scof-fed at our plight, 
We felt pity and were not riled 

Because he was far from right. 
No snow fell on Bethlehem 

The night the Star first shone. 
There was no blizzard nor howling gale 
That swept with shriek and moan. 
The breeze was soft and what is more, 

The night the Christ Child came 
Hibiscus bloomed near the stable door 

As Mary murmured His name. 
The Heavenly Host in the starry sky 
Proclaimed the birth of the King, 
And rustling palms echoed the cry 

As the whole earth seemed to sing. 
So we find here in our sun-drenched land, 

Untouched by ice and snow, 
That the spirit of Christmas is near at hand, 
And we feel God willed it so.

The Christmas Message 


Say it as you will, 

That simple word 

Can make the world stand still. 

An Old-Fashioned Christmas In The Life 

Of A Modern Consumer 

Peace, Heaven, Joy 


Christmas offers us peace in 
one hand, but in the other it car- 
ries a sword. The peace it offers 
is the love we felt in childhood 
and may still feel again if we 
have lived our lives as we were 
instructed in our early days. The 
sword is our own conscience ght- 
teriiiR as sharply as the icicles 
on the Christmas tree. This is 
why most of us welcome Christ- 
mas and yet we dread its eom- 

in K- . , ,u 

Christmas is anticipation for the 

child; it is memory for most 

adults. It fastens the grip of 

truth upon us and will not let us 

go. Implacable, it demands of -Us 

that we regard our work ' and 

what, we have made of our lives, 

our country and our world. 

Today's typical, old-fashioned 
Christmas is more the product 
of the mechanized, advertising 
world than of mamma's steamy 
kitchen or pappa's busy work- 
shop. The efforts of this advertis- 
ing world to recreate a situation 
that can no longer exist may turn 
out a Christmas more suited to 
the housewife but also contribute 
toward the distraction of the real- 
ly old fashioned Christmas. 

A very fine example of this will 
happen this year in the lives of 
the unsuspecting John Remember 
family, as well as in the lives of 
families all over the nation. 

The Kemember's have been 
unknowningly swayed by the 
whims and fancies of today's 
mass media. They are told to 
remember when mommy and 
daddy prepared their Christmas 
fantasies so many years ago. 
They are filled with the notion, 
that what is deemed to be, the 

ideal, old - fashioned Christmas 
of yesterday can again be re- 
lived and enjoyed, but the peo- 
ple who are living and enjoying 
it do not seem to be able to 
distinguish imitation from real- 

Although the stage for this farce 
may have been created many 
months prior on the drawing 
board of some energetic designer, 
the characteristic hustle and bus- 
tle of the holiday season does not 
commence until that finjt pros- 
pective customer is influehced by 
some synthetic holiday cheer. 

Filled with the visions of the 
red and green advertisement 
pages and fondly remembering 
the "cakes that mama used to 
bake," Mrs. Remember decides 
to introduce her family to some 
old - fashioned, Christmas cakes, 
cookies and candy. After reach- 
ing the supermarket she is tak- 
en aback. What should she 

choose for her holiday treats? 
Should she buy the mix for the 
fruit cake, the mix for the pre- 
pared fudge or the mix for the 
nmrblecake? The ten minutes 
she spent slaving to mix the 
ingredients and twenty more 
pacing the floor anxiously 
watching the oven door were 
richly rewarded by John's glow- 
ing and unknowing praise— 
"just like my mother used to 

And where was John all this 
time' Some four months before, 
he had discovered the perfect 
Christmas gift in a magazine 
"for men only." Now he was 
busily working with the power 
tools that pappa never had. 'Hfe 
finished product will, of : coun «, 
be smoothly planed, nailed and 
varnished-according to the, stand- 
ards of his magazine's carpenter, 
just like pappa's in al but hours 
spent in work. 



■M . 


—Watson B. Duncan, HI 

Tucked into his wee Utile bed, 
Johnny Kemember dreams of 
sugar plums to the hum of his 
electric blanket. In the early 
morning light, he scrampers 
down the hall stairs to see what 
the commercial artists drew, 
mommy bought, the department 
store wrapped and the delivery 
truck brought- 

Two hours later, Mrs. Remem* 
ber has cleaned the synthetic rug 
with her electric sweeper and 
popped the pre - cooked urkey 
tato her mechanically controlled 

This, in essence, is * hat , th * 
advertising world had hoped to 
accomplish through process e 
creating the glittering world of 
signs, pictures and price tags. 
ThTs is the festive holiday season 
with which modern consumer is 

feced and in some cases destined.

After the tinsel has withered,

not glitter and shimmer like a

The same love and the same

Christmas Song 

The song of Christmas is about to be sung 

As the chorals echo and the holly is hung 
Stockings are filled, presents placed by the tree 

Greeting cards are in view for our friends to see. 
People are scurrying here and there 

With tinsel glittering everywhere 
Bliss and gladness will reign supreme 

While children wish and are left to dream. 
We think again of life's many treasures 

Remembering the year with endless pleasures 
The .spirit of Yuletide prevails on Earth 

Amidst laughter, merriment and math. 
We diaak the Lord for the joy of living 

And ask bis grace that we may be forgiving 
His greatest gift lies within one's heart 

Performing acts of charity, a forgotten art. 
Have a nice Christmas Holiday— —Pat Richards

Gainesville Drama Trip 
Called An 'Experience' 

Opera Gives 


Beachcomber Staff 

Have you ever gotten up at 4:30 
in the morning? Well, let me tell 
you, it's a horrible experience; 
an experience that everyone in 
the cast of "Look Homeward An- 
gel" had, Friday, December 7. It 
was agreed upon by the cast 
call a certain number at 5 a.m. 
and let them know you were 
awake and would be at MacAr- 
thur's Dairy, promptly at 6 a.m. 
Too bad lor those who did not 
call at 5; someone called them 
to get them up and around. 

You always meet comedians 
during the day and night, but at 
5 in the morning, it's rather hard 
to stomach. For example, the 
number which we called answered 
the following way: "Hello. Sie- 
bert's Morgue. You stab em, we 
slab em." 

Now really, at that hour, it 
would be ,jU8t as good to say 
"hello" instead of making jokes, 
but people must learn to cope 
with others as the old saying goes. 
Well, utter a hurried cup of cof- 
fee, and some frantic last min- 
ute packing, the group assembled 
at the proper meeting place, 
noses were counted, and away 
we went. 

Many jokes, songs, and a bit 
of sleep later, the car caravan 
stopped at Avon Park for a much 
needed cup of coffee and huge 
breakfast. Why it did not snow 
in that part of the country is be- 
yond me, because it felt as if 
you had no feet, and that your 
nose would soon break off if 
warmth did not come soon. 

Little did we know that it would 
become even colder as time went 
by, but we did find out, that's 
for sure. 

Now comes the most memor- 
able part of the trip — one which 
everyone will never forget. To 
begin with, may I backtrack and 
mention that a certain car left 
earlier than the rest, agreeing to 
meet the caravan for lunch at, 
and get this, FRU1TLAND 

PARK! ! 

Now" let me tell you friends, H 
you have never been to Fruit- 
land Park, you are missing some- 
thing. What I don't know, but I'm 
sure you are missing something. 
Be very careful not to blink your 
eyes when you approach this vi- 
cinity, or you will miss Fruitland 
Park and will have to turn back. 
As I mentioned before, we were 
to meet this person for lunch, but 
after one hour had passed, we 
decided to forget the whole thing 
and give up our search. Fruitland 
may not be a big town, but just 
try to find someone in it. 

It was about 11:00 a.m. and 
we had our picnic lunch, which 
consisted of frozen baked beans, 
frozen potato salad, frozen bologne 
sandwiches, frozen cheese, frozen 
cake, cookies, and brownies and 
frozen carrots as well as frozen 
Pepsi's. m 

Now, let's face it. The drama 
department must be a "little off" 
and I'm sure that people who 
were driving by must have 
guessed this right away. 

There we were, standing in a 
40-degree temperature, teeth chat- 
tering, and two nice, warm res- 
taurants 20 feet away. Actually, 
there was one good thing about it 
—you didn't have to worry about 
chewing up your food; your chat- 
tering teeth did the job automa- 
tically. To make things a little 
more interesting, names were giv- 
en to everyone in the cast which 
were as follows: (see if you can 
guess who they are; answers will 
be in the next issue.) Byzantine 
Smith; Chantal Modele; Piper 
L e G a y ; Consodine Winchell; 
Scotch Quill; Justine Mudd; John- 
athan Agathy; Odie Darlin; Evan- 
geline Kensey; Polly Minneola; 
lago Flinch; Check Props; Grizz- 
ley Clearmont; Athena Vision; 
Marmaduke Tidy; Organdy Shell; 
Cubby Grismal; Grid Iron; Spring 
fryington; Stormy Clatt; Adolp 

Gioranni Heel; and Thoroughbred 

Gainesville was not prepared 
for these characters, but they all 
arrived about 1:15 p.m. at the 
Manor Motel — about 8 blocks 
from the University of Florida. 
After assigning rooms, and a hur- 
ried change, everyone went to the 
campus and set up the stage 
(what little of it there was) for 
the scene we were to do at 7 p.m. 
The main problem here was try- 
ing to find the right hall to set 
the stage up in. We asked stu- 
dents and faculty members alike 
where the particular place was 
but to no avail. They didn't know. 
We felt like a mouse in a big 
maze but finally, somehow, we 
made it. After a hectic dinner in 
the campus "Hub", we got into 
our costumes and put on our per- 
formance, "Look Homeward An- 
gel", last act. According to the 
reports which followed, the mem- 
bers of Phi Ro Pi, thought it had 
been an excellent display of 

Needless to say, this enlightened 
everyone and we all went to see 
the production, "The Madwoman' 
of Chatilot", presented by the 
Gainesville players. Now I am 
basically one who should not crit- 
icize, but I feel as though I know 
enough about the field of drama 
and can recognize good and bad 

In my own opinion, this was a 
play which took no talent at all to 
produce. As a matter of fact, it 
would be very easy to write one 
like it in two minutes. I'd tell you 
about the plot and so on, but I 
never did figure it out myself. 

Maybe those who did see the 
entire play would be able to, as 
some did enjoy it, and under- 
stood it. Following a late snack 
at Howard Johnson's, we had a 
party which consisted of cake and 
coffee back at the motel. You 
would never guess that we are a 
hungry bunch of people. 

Well, at this point everyone be- 
gan to yawn and left for their 
respective rooms to retire, ex- 
cepting a few men who opened 
a deck of cards. The next day 
we returned to the campus, had 
breakfast, (by the way, the food 
there is unexplainable; all I can 
say is, you definitely need a cast 
iron stomach) and then we pro- 
ceeded to remove the set and 
pack it into a station wagon. 

From that point, we headed for 
the Normal Hall where "Anthony 
and Cleopatra" scenes were be- 
ing run through. At noon, we met 
at the motel, packed, and began 
the trip home. 

Some of our students remained 
there for the rest of the weekend 
but most were too tired to do 
anything but go back home and 
get some sleep, never to forget 
the enjoyable trip. 

If you should ever take a trip 
to Gainesville, or attend the Uni- 
versity of Florida for that mat- 
ter, do me one favor — ask them 
not to build any more buildings. 
It's hard enough trying to find 
out where you can get some food. 
And remember too — the key 
word is FRUITLAND!

about qualifications and applica-

ducted on a tour about the campus 
in groups of ten to twenty by 
the Circle "K" Service Club and 
other members of the student 

TJie tour began at the Tech- 
nical Building. Visiting students 
walked along the south wing and 
along the second floor of the 
north wing. 

Immediately leaving the Techni- 
cal Building the prospective 
freshmen were conducted through 
the Science Building. In this de- 
partment our guests examined the 
science lecture room, the anatom- 
ical and biological laboratory de- 
partments. Students witnessed lab- 
oratory preparations in the chem- 
istry laboratories. 

Guides then conducted their 
groups past the home economics 
and business departments. After 
passing the new classroom build- 
ing, which is under construction, 
students looked at the library 
through the glass windows. 

After a discussion and answer 
session in the art department, 
the guests walked along the Ad- 
ministration Building past the 
Deans' offices and health room, 
past the book store to the music 
building and then to the Gym- 
nasium. Visiting students were 
then directed to the Student 
lounge where they were served 
a beverage. 

Interview Denied 
With President 

A request made by BEACH- 
COMBER editor, Peggy Blanch- 
ard, for a personal interview with 
President John F. Kennedy during 
the Christmas Holidays, was re- 
cently denied by Presidential 
Press Secretary Pierre Salinger. 

Miss Blanchard requested the 
interview shortly after the Presi- 
dent's November 20 news confer- 
ence in which he announced his 
intentions of spending the Holi- 
day Season in Palm Beach. 

In answering her letter, Mr. 
Salinger stated: "it will not be 
possible to arrange the inter- 
view yon requested with the 
President. He does not usually 
grant these requests for indivi- 
dual interviews for the reason 
that they are so numerous. And, 
of course, the time he spends 
in Palm Beach is an attempt 
at a vacation — although it 
usually turns out to be work." 
In giving her reasons for the 
requested interview, Miss Elanch- 
ard commented, "As a represen- 
tative of the future leaders of 
American I felt that the youth 
of this country had just as much 
right to hear and be heard as 
do other groups. I am disappointed 
because of the refusal — but un- 
derstand the reasons behind it."

The Christmas Sporophyte 


Once upon a time in a great - 
forest of the subphylum Pterop- 
sida, class Gymnospermae, there 
lived a little sporophyte of the 
evergreen species, commonly 
known as pine.In all of the great 
forest the little sporophyte was 
the unhappiest of the evergreens. 
The little fellow was an undevel- 
oped weakling, so to speak, al- 
though it wasn't whollyhis fault. 
When he was born three years 
When he was born three years 
before the wind wafted him as a 
tiny embryo into a deep crevass 
between two ibneous outcroppings. 
And there he languished for sev- 
eral days, until a gentle precipi- 
tation washed a bit of mud over 
him. The damp mud precluded 
an early demise from dessication, 
and the tiny sporophyte grew 
(but not very much), 
(but not very much). 

In three years time he was a 
scanty three feet of gnarled 
height, and the giant sporophyte 
that was his parent (both mother 
and father) was certainly disap- 
pointed in the results of its stam- 
inate and sarpellate cones. But 
there was little the parent could 
do to help. Every now and then, 
of course, when the wind was 
strong in the upper terraces, the 
parent sporophyte would bend as 
far to one side as possible and in 
this manner the young sporo- 
phyte received a little sunlight on 
its dorsal needles, but not very 

But, the parent sporophyte 
thought grimly; every little sporo- 
phyte is entitled to photosy thesis; 
With the limited amount of 
photosynthesis he enjoyed, the 
shadebound little sporophyte 
was a sorry specimen indeed. 
His roots, blocked from a truly 
adequate supply of water and 
mineral salts, barely kept him 
alive. The cambium quit in dis- 
gust after two years had passed, 
and it it doubtful whether the 
stunted sporophyte's xylem and 
phloem combined would have 

produced enough turpentine to 
fill a cigarette lighter (made in 

Most of his terminal branches 
were limpid and stubby, and only 
one desperate, puny, ventral, non- 
fluorescent promeristem reached 
out netherly toward phototropism. 
His needles were a dirty shade 
of terracotta, instead of the lovely 
dark green color displayed by the 
other forest Gymnospermae. 

Only his parent sporophyte 
whispered to him; the other tra- 
cheophyta ignored him complete- 
ly, as did the chordate fauna. 
Needless to say, the little sporo- 
phyte was miserable most of the 

Still — the little sporophyte oft- 
en mused — no matter how meag- 
er my existence is, my parent 
sporophyte loves me. And then, 
one cold, bitter day in early De- 
cember, two men (and a mule) 
entered the forest. The parent 
sporophyte was felled by the two 
men and the supine pine was 
snaked out of the woods and load- 
ed onto a flatbed wagon. As they 
say in the PBJC Foreign Lan- 
guage Club, "Mala suerte!" 

miserable, now that his parent 
was gone, tbs little sporophyte 
was also lonely. During respira- 
tion periods, he gave off prec- 
ious little carbon dioxide. If a 
cheap character hadn't come 
along on Christmas Eve to chop 
him down, the little sporophyte 
would probably have disd from 
hardening of the phellogen. His 
catabolism wasn't working any 
too well, and he had given up 
anabolism altogether. 

runty sporophyte into the back 
of his station wagon and took it 
home. When he brought the little 
sporophyte into his home, his wife 
took one disgusted look at it, and 
then snarled; "What's that sup- 
posed to be?" 

"It's a Christmas sporophyte," 
her husband replied defensively.' 

"A Christmas sporophyte!; 1 the 
lovely woman snarled. "I've seen 

chlorophyless thallophytes with- 
out any true roots, stems or 
leaves that were better - looking 
Christmas sporophytes than that 
mutant specimen!" She coughed 
and gasped for breath then, be- 
cause it was the longest snarl 
she had ever snarled. 

"Maybe so," her husband re- 
plied defensively, "but it is a far 
far better thing I do, to get a 
free sporophyte from the forest, 
than it is to pay six - bits for 
one at the supermarket." 

"You decorate it then," the 
charming woman suggested. 
"I'm not even going to try. And 
you'd better do a good job of it 
because I don't want the chil- 
dren disappointed in the morn- 

"All right," her husband replied 

After DRAGGING DOWN a few 
boxes of decorations from the at- ' 
.tic (left over from the year be- 
fore), her husband placed the lit- 
tle sporophyte in one corner of the 
living room and covered the ne- 
ther portion of the scaly trunk 
with a white sheet. He also strung 
a string of colored electric lights 
through the thin branches. After 
lopping off the outsized meristem * 
for a semblance of symmetry, the 
husband tossed silver and gold 
tinsel here and there over the 
sporophyte, and hung multicolored 
silica gel globules on the proto- 
derm apicals — at least on those 
that were strong enough to sup- 
port them. 

Actually, once it was decorated, 
the little sporophyte didn't look 
too bad. 

"Actually," the wife stated, 
"the little sporophyte doesn't 
look too bad, now that it's dec- 
orated. Turn on the lights, why 
don't cha?" 

The husband plugged in the 
lights, but nothing happened. 

"Plug in the lights, I said!" the 
woman ordered. 

"I did plug them in," her hus- 
band replied defensively, "but 
nothing happened. 
"Maybe one of the bulbs is 

burned out. Replace it!" his wife 

"But I don't have any extra 
bulbs," her husband replied de- 

"Then get some!" his wife di- 

"Well, it's after midnight," her 
husband said defensively, "but I 
know a hardware man in Belle 
Glade who might still be open." 

After her husband left the 
house for Belle Glade, the wo- 
man twisted each tiny bulb, in 
turn, until she reached the sev- 
enth bulb, which was loose. All 
the lights came on, lighting up 
the little sporophyte like a 
Christinas Sporophyte. 
TURNED a couple of hours later 
from Belle Glade, empty - handed, 
she smiled at him: "Why didn't 
you check all of the lights before 
you left to see if one of them 
was loose in the socket? It 
would've saved you a trip to 
Belle Glade." 

"I see that it would," her hus- 
band replied defensively. 

The primary social group plac- 
ed Christmas presents beneath 
the Christmas sporophyte; and 
then the happy couple went to 

For the very first time in his 
life the little sporophyte was 
happy. In fact, he thought the 
happy couple was nuts for not 
admiring his new beauty and 
appearance more than they did. 
Across the room in the mirror 
he could see himself in all of 
his rejuvenated, reflected glory, 
and he considered himself very 
beautiful indeed. 

Christmas day, the two small 
children of the still sleeping, hap- 
py couple awakened at six a.m. 
and rushed pell mell into the liv- 
ing room. 

"My, what a glorious Christ- 
mas sporophyte;" the little girl 
exclaimed ecstatically. 

"You said it, sister!" her little 
brother echoed dramatically. 

The two tiny tots danced ec- 
satically and respectively, about 
the Christmas sporophyte for a 
minute or so, and (hen they 
clawed away the thin tissue wrap- 
pings from their respective pres- 
ents beneath the sporophyte. 

"Oh, but this is a great day in 
my gray life!" the little sporo- 
phyte thought happily. "Not only 
am I also loved — but for my- 
self alone." 

tliat when January 8, l%3 rolled 
around he would bs dessicating 
on an empty lot three blocks 
away under the Florida sun, the 
little sporophyte basked all day 
in his reflected glory. He ac- 
cepted the remarks about his 
good looks (from the various 
neighbors who trooped in and 
out all day, looking for a free 
one) as his just due. 
This great happiness was marr- 
ed by just one flaw. He wished 
fervently that has parent sporo- 
phte could learn of his success 
and glamour as a Christmas 

Christmas story, and all such 
stories have a happy ending. The 
mature sporophyte who was the 
parent of the little one, was made 
into newsprint in Anniston, Ala- 
bama. The paper was shipped to 
Lake Worth, Florida, and this is- 
sue of The BEACHCOMBER was 
printed on the paper that was 
once the mature sporophyte. 

As the presses rolled, the ma- 
ture sporophyte learned of its off- 
spring's success as a Christmas 
sporophyte 1,500 times as the tale 
was rubbed indelibly into its tis- 
sues again and again. 

And if you ask me, he's mighty 
tired of hearing about it by now.

McChesney Editor 
Of 1962-63 Media 

The Media staff has chosen 
Bonnie McChesney as editor of 
the 1962-63 literary magazine. 
Earl Dotter is to be art editor. 

David Sparks has been chosen 
business manager. Wayne Neilson 
and George Pawley have been

Plaque Donated 
To Wishing Well 

Palm Beach Junior College 
would like to express their thanks 
to the Davis Lake Worth Monu- 
ment Company, 517 North Dixie 
Highway, Lake Worth, Florida, 
for donating the plaque for the 
Wishing Well. 

The income from the Wishing 
Well has been steadily increasing 
since the beginning of the drive 
in September 1962. On December 
19, the total amount contributed 
was $67.42 including the $25 that 
was given during Wishing Well 

submitted for publication in the 
1963 campus literary magazine. 

The staff is already reviewing 
contributions for publication. In 
order to assure the fairness of the 
review, each staff member con- 
siders each work separately, for 
tentative publication. They then 
analyize each contribution and 
give it a rating. 

At the deadline time, contribu- 
tions which have received eligible 
ratings are again voted upon in 
the same manner. The ones se- 
lected at that time are the oaes 
that will appear in Media. 

The members of the staff are 
not aware of the identity of the 
contributor until the final selec- 
tions have heen made. 

A student may submit as many 
contributions as he desires, but 
only three of his works may be 
published in the magazine.

Editor's Notebook 


The Best Laid Schemes 

"The best laid schemes of mice and men ..." (Robert Burns) 
is a phrase which is certainly applicable to certain projects attempted 
around the campus of Palm Beach Junior College. Only perhaps, 
the plans weren't among the best laid. 

A noteable example of this is the condition of the walk leading 
from the Student Lounge to the south parking lot. A graduating 
class back in the dim dark past decided that it would be nice to 
have their names recorded for posterity and hence donated said walk. 
They forgot, however, that PBJC students are not giants and placed 
the stones a little toe far apart. 

A civic minded club on campus has decided to remedy the situation 
by placing cement between the stones — they forgot that cement 
against cement doesn't go too well. Apparently they are now either 
discouraged or else they are thinking of a new solution because no 
work has been done on the walk for quite some time. 

If this organization would net think it too forward of this paper, 
we would like to make a suggestion— PLEASE fill in the yawning 
crevases between stones before someone breaks an ankle. 

Another organization on campus, we've been told vowed eternal 
care of the Wishing Well— landscape-wise at least. Word has come 
back, however, that this organization has become lax in its respon- 
sibilities and this task has now fallen onto someone else's shoulder. 

Everyone, it seems, was in favor of the construction of said 
Wishing Well, it is now up to the clubs who conceived this idea to 
keep their part of the bargain in making it flourish. 

Loose on Campus 

It seems that a new monster is loose on the campuses of Florida 
State Colleges — a tri-monster created by the state legislature. 
Actually, tri-mester is the correct name for this new system, 
however, to students dragging themselves home from final exams 
felt this new appelation more appropo. 

Reasons given for this new name vary as degrees of exhaustion 
in students varied. A semester cut from 18 to 14 weeks, and a class 
period lengthened from 48 to 55 minutes were to cancel each other 
out and allow for the same amount of time for educational purposes— 

According to the students, the good legislators allowed for that 
but they seemed to have forgotten that they can't increase the length 
of the day to more than 24 hours. It is at this point that squeeze 
comes in. Unfortunately little time can be found for general class 
preparation, research papers, and required readings, on this new 

Very little time, if any, is left for extra-curricular activities such 
as clubs and social doings — so long an integral part of a student's 
overall college education. 

Little opportunity for financial aid is found for entering students 
during the first tri-mester, for the college does not want to risk 
giving such aid imtil students have proven their college ability on the 
tri-mester system. 

What seemed to have been a good idea to the legislators in the 
past must now come under careful and well deserved scrutiny. 

Is such a system as valuable as it was first thought to be when 
approximately 40 per cent of the students are "flunked out" of 
one of the state universities? 

Is not one of the purposes of going to college the expansion of 
the students cultural and social outlooks so that he is better suited 
for life in our complex world? 

Graduation from such a program may be quicker, but the value 
is doubtful. Perhaps its worth will be shown more fully after the 
completion of the second tri-mester. 

Math Department Program 

The Mathematics Department of Palm Beach Junior College 
is currently meeting with members of the Math Department at 
Forest Hill High School in order to aid them in setting up an 
advanced mathematics program for seniors. Fruits of these meetings 
may be the setting up of College Algebra and Trigonometry courses 
for eligible students. This program is a step in a program of closer 
relationships with area high schools.

Message from FAU 
Dear Editor: 

On behalf of Florida Atlantic 
University, I wish to express 
sincere appreciation for the out- 
standing program of musical se- 
lections presented by the Palm 
Beach Junior College Concert 
Band and Singers, under the di- 
rection of Professor Otis Harvey 
and Hugh Albee, at our Ground- 
breaking exercises December 8. 
Their performance contributed in 
great measure to the occasion and 
we have received many compli- 
mentary comments on the quality 
of the music. 

We are also most grateful to 
the charming young women who 
served as usherettes and distri- 
buted our programs. We know 
that all of the students gave up 
personal plans to participate nnd 
we wish we could express our 
thanks to each one individually. 
Since that is not possible, I am 
hoping to reach each student 
through the BEACHCOMBER Col- 

We extend to each of our friends 
of the faculty and the student 
body every good wish for the New 
Year. We look forward to a firm 
and close relationship in our com- 
mon educational pursuits. 
Kenneth R. Williams, 
FAU President 

A Rebuttal 
To the Editor: 

There is an old saying that "if 
something is on your mind, go 
home and sleep on it". It was 
obvious that the letter which ap- 
peared in the December 11 issue, 
signed, "Name Withheld" was 
written immediately following the 
Sophomore Class assembly and 
placed upon the editor's desk 
without an afterthought. 

I feel that when anything is 
written, pro's as well as con's 
should be mentioned. Truthfully 
speaking, I was unable to attend 

the first part of the program 
which was stated as being "ex- 
tremely distasteful" and cannot, 
therefore, comment upon it. Go- 
ing only on heresay it is possibly 
true that better jokes could have 
been used, but on the other hand, 
it was the entertainment, and the 
publicity, which drew a great 
number of sophomores to the 

The meetings which I have at- 
tended in the past, have never 
had such a widespread turnout. 
As for Bob Lee, I agree that he 
did not give the Sophomore 
Class, that is, some of them, 
enough time to express their 
views on the various issues in- 

True also, he could have done 
a better job in transferring from 
one topic to another, but one 
must consider the time element 
involved. Many things had to be 
mentioned and the meeting could 
not be devoted to one topic alone. 
We -must consider ourselves for- 
tunate enough to have obtained an 
hour (instead of the usual 20 
minutes), as was stated, "that 
the administration was generous 
enough to grant". 

Think about this— if we weren't 
granted the hour, there would 
have been NO chance for ANY 
discussion whatsover. Bob Lee 
would have had to say, now this is 
what we'll do. Period. 

As for Bill Green, he could have 
omitted a bit of sarcasm which he 
used to somewhat of an extreme, 
but he stated his ideas as well 
as bringing up vital information.

Results of a recent survey I

By-laws passed by the ISCC 
1959-60 made it mandatory for

Nothing drastic. Participation

dications, is not. 

If grades are brought up to t 
satisfactory level by the semesti

over until the next quarter, t 
next semester, and on and < 

This is not to say, howevi 
that the blame lies entirely on t 
doorstep of the social clubs. Pi 
haps it lies in part with ,t 
pledges, many of whom are fre; 
men, who cannot wait to becor 
club members. 

Perhaps it would be advisab 
as has often been suggested, 
postpone the initial pledging i 
perience until after the first ni 
weeks of school or until afi 
quarter grades are sent out. ,Ti 
would give the potential soc 
club pledge a chance to adji

In all fairness it would even 
more advantageous to the sot 
clubs themselves for in that n 
weeks, potential members co 
be met and those who would st* 
the best chance of meeting 
quirements, socially and acade 
ically could be selected. T 
would in effect eliminate \ 
time and money expended hi 
pledges, who for one reason 
another fail to meet initiation 

Perhaps it might be \vo 
while for the ISCC to look Jj

it— as it was once used a f 
years ago.

The second gravest problem confronting college students to- 
day is inferiority feelings. (The first gravest problem is of 
course, the recent outbreak of moult among sorority house 
canaries.) Let us today look into the causes of inferiority 
feelings and their possible cures. 

Psychologists divide inferiority feelings into three principal 
categories : 

1. Physical inferiority. 

2. Mental inferiority. 

3. Financial inferiority. 

(A few say there is also a fourth category: ichthyological 
inferiority— a feeling that other people have prettier fish— 
but I believe this is common only along the coasts and in the 
Great Lakes area.) 

Let us start with the feeling of physical inferiority, perhaps 
the easiest to understand. Naturally we are inclined to feel 
inferior to the brawny football captain or the beautiful home- 
coming queen. But we should not. Look at all the people, 
neither brawny nor beautiful, who have made their marks in 
the world. Look at Napoleon. Look at Socrates. Look at 
Caesar. Look at Lassie. 

% mklineihhlin{t 


What I mean is that you can't always tell what's inside a 
package by looking at the outside. (Sometimes, of course, you 
can. Take Marlboro Cigarettes, for example. Just one glance 
at that jolly red-and-white package— so bright and pert — so 
neat but not gaudy— so perfectly in place whether you are at 
a formal dinner or a beach picnic— so invariably correct for 
any time, clime, or condition— one look, I say, at this paragon 
of packs and you know it has to contain cigarettes of absolute 
perfection. And you are right! That pure white Marlboro 
filter, that fine, flavorful blend of Marlboro tobaccos, will 
give you a smoke to make the welkin ring, whatever that is. 
So those of you who have just been sitting and admiring your 
Marlboro packs since the beginning of the semester, why don't 
you open a pack and light one? Light a cigarette, I mean— 
not the package. Then you can settle back and smoke your 
Marlboro and, at the same time, continue to gaze rapturously 
at the pack. Thus you will be twice as happy as you are if 
that is possible.) 

But I digress. Let us turn now to the second category- 
mental inferiority. A lot of people think they are dumber than 
other people. This is not so. It must be remembered that there 
are different kinds of intelligence. Take, for instance, the clas- 
sic case of the Sigafoos brothers, Claude and Sturbridge, stu- 
dents at Wake Forest. It was always assumed that Claude was 
the more intelligent just because he knew more than Stur- 
bridge about the arts, the sciences, the social sciences, the hu- 
manities, and like that. Sturbridge, on the other hand, was ten 
times smarter than Claude when it came to tying granny knots. 
But no matter ; everybody looked down on "Stupid Sturbridge," 
as they called him and looked up at "Clever Claude," as they 
called him. But who do you think turned out to be the smart 
one when their granny almost got loose and ran away? You 
guessed it-good old Stupid Sturbridge. 

We arrive now at the final category, financial inferiority. 
One way to deal with this condition is to increase your income. 
You can, for example, become a fence. Or you can pose for a 
life class, if your college is well heated. 

But a better way to handle financial inferiority is to accept 
it philosophically. * Look on the bright side of poverty. True, 
others may have more money than you have, but look at all 
the things' you have that they dotrt-dehts, for instance, and 
hunger cramps. 

And what about friendship? \ou don t need money to have 
friends, and let me tell you something, good people: the older 
you get the more you will realize that nothing is so precious as 
friendship, and the richest man in the world is the one with 
the most money. , t * e-MWM»«w««i

Dollars for Scholars Results 

Although this year's Dollars for 
Scholars Drive collected about 
$100 more than last year's, the 
operating expenses have more 
than doubled. The process of di- 
rect-mailing of envelopes proved 
to be much more expensive than 
the old method of handing them 
out, commented Dean Paul J. 

According to Dean Glynn, most 
fund raising experts say that it 
will be three or four, years be- 
fore the Dollar for Scholars pro- 
gram will get off the ground and 
be able to provide enough money 
for student assistantships to help 
more than just a few students. 

The Palm Beacli Junior College 
Alumni Association hopes to build 
up this fund so that many stu- 
dents can work their way through 
college. When asked about this, 
Dean Glynn had this comment: 
"A dollar itself is not much, but 
when many of them are piled on 
each other, they can be used to do 
something worthwhile." 

The largest single contribution 
this year, was $50; this was given 
by Dr. V.. D. Stone, a personal 
friend of Dr. Leonard, former 
PBJC president. There were also 
many others who contributed 

more than the amount asked for. 

There is a great need for stu- 
dent assistants, and there are 
many students who need the fi- 
nancial help one of these schol- 
arships offer, said Dean Glynn.

You may want to vary your 
schedule next semester with some 
new experience that you will 
never regret. One of the new art 
courses that is useful to anyone 
is Interior Design. 

Art for a hobby could be found 
in Illustration, Ceramics and 
Enamelling or Painting. To find 
out why art can be a great 
and wonderful accomplishment in 
past times or today, enroll in Art 

If your dream house is a pent- 
house in Paris, a trailer in To- 
peka or just that prize-winning, 
project home west of town, you 
will make it more surely that 
beautiful dream house, yours and 
yours only, if you know the pro- 
fessional approach. 

Interior Design, AT 210, is the 
answer. In this class, you will 
have basic experience in Design 
and Color and practical knowl- 
edge of furnishing and materials. 
Previous art knowledge is not re- 

Creative experiences within 
your ability, text and field trips 
comprise the course. Interior De- 
sign carries two semester hours 
and is an elective under General 
Education. Incidentally, it can 
help anyone make an office or 
place of business more attractive 
as well as a home. The builder or 
architect will find it essential. 

If you enjoy drawing but want 
to draw better, Illustration this 
semester is concerned with land- 
scape and buildings. This course 
is recommended before taking 
Painting. It is very helpful to stu- 
dents going into Building as well 
as Architecture. Drawing can be 
a delightful hobby and there is no 
time like the present to start en- 
joying life. 

Painting and Ceramics are both 
very popular hobbies. You might 
end up a Gauguin, for he began 
as a Sunday painter. To enroll in 
Painting, one previous art course 
is desired. Art Appreciation can 
serve as the previous course. De-

Painting carries two semester 
hours of credit. In this class, you 
will get a sound technical knowl- 
edge, have experience in several 
approaches to painting, and find 
enjoyment in one of the most ex- 
pressive forms of visual art. 

Ceramics and Enamelling are 
two of the ancient arts and the 
products of your creativity will 
last thousands of years. This is

the challenge for you; to make it 
worthy of such endurance. No 
previous art course is necessary, 
only the desire to try your hand. 
Work in clay can be in making 
useful and decorative utensils and 
sculpture. Enamelling is an art of 
color, in which powdered glass is 
fired on copper at high heat in 
a few minutes. This hobby does 
not require space or even ex- 
tended time periods. Ceramics 
and Enamelling carries two se- 
mester hours of credit. 

Illustration, Painting, and Ce-

Idea: How to Hold 
Sagging Pants Up 

This is a recipe for college stu- 
dents who never seem to get 
enough to eat. It is especially di- 
rected toward the individual who 
finds he is forced to keep his 
pants up with suspenders, or is 
forced to bite his fingernails to 
sate his gnawing hunger. 

The Egyptian, Southern Illinois 
University newspaper, has an- 
nounced that students can learn 
how to survive on their own cook- 
ing. The greatest advantage of 
this recipe is that it provides 
ample time for the student to 
study while preparing it. 

Slit weiner lengthwise, cutting 
to but not through the skin on the 
other side— during this minute 
and with his free hand the stu- 
dent may find the page of his 
homework he plans to study. In- 
sert a slice of cheese one-half 
inch wide and one-fourth inch 
thick. Wrap bacon slice around 
the weiner. Bake in a baking dish 
or skillet at 350 degrees for 10 
minutes. Insert in a bun and 
munch along with a glass of milk 
for a quick and pants-holding-up 
lunch, dinner or breakfast.

Dr. Manor Enrolled 
In Evening Course 
On Soviet Studies 

By Peggy Blanchard 
Comber Editor 

Returning to the scene of the 
crime, so to speak, Palm Beach 
Junior College president, Harold 
C. Manor, became a student dur- 
ing the first semester. 

Dr. Manor as a student enrolled 
in the new night course, "An In- 
troduction to Soviet Studies," dur- 
ing the first semester. 

"Student" Manor became inter- 
ested in this course when he at- 
tended the Governor's Confer- 
ence on Cold War Education 
during the summer. 

He decided to take this course 
because he felt it not only a topic 
of interest to himself personally, 
but because he felt and still feels 
that many adults should take this 
study approach to communism 
in order to form opinions based 
upon fact. 

The evils of communism, he 
feels, are better combated by 
facts than by blind opinions. 

"A thoroughly enjoyed expe- 
rience" was Dr. Manor's descrip- 
tion of this first academic class 
he has attended at PBJC. 

In giving his views of the class, 
he commented that he has be- 
come interested in the Russian 
language and in reading and 
studying the philosophy of the 
Russian form of government. 

His awareness of the unimpor- 
tance of the individual person in 
communism was heightened as a 
result of the course, as was his 
realization that the communistic 
form of government was extreme- 
ly illogical philosophically. 

Inu dealing with the academics 
involved in the course, Dr. Manor 

remarked on the homework load 
—which was rather heavy in his 

"A minimum of five reading 
reports was required by the 
course but I managed to submit 
six and do partial readings on 
several other subjects," he re- 
marked rather proudly. 

"Fifteen hours of work was re- 
quired for three semester hours 
of credit," he said. "Three hours

College's Role

"Americanism versus Commu-

production on the current College 
Showcase television series. The 
Sunday, February 17, production 
on WPTV, Channel 5, will feature 
social science instructor Payge 
Dampier in a capacity of special 

Mr. Dampier has been teaching 
a course in the subject to area 
high school teachers during the 
first semester of the school year. 
The high school teachers are then 
to go back to their respective 
schools and teach the course dur- 
ing the last six weeks of the 
school year. 

The scene of the production wiD 
be a mock classroom in which 
Mr. Dampier will be instructing 
eleven of his hi?h school teacher 
students. He will be teaching a 
short unit on Communist double 

After the instruction, interviews 
with the various teachers will be 
conducted. The high school in- 
structors will be questioned on the 
ways in which they plan to teach 
the course. 

The reason for this instruction 
is founded in the legislative order 
requiring that a course dealing 
with Americanism versus Com- 
muism be taken by all those who 
are candidates for graduation 
from a public high school. 

During the remainder of the 
program, interviews will be con- 
ducted with some of those who 
were responsible for the junior 
college taking charge of the train- 
ing of these high school teachers. 

Some of the Board of Instruc- 
tion's personnel who will be re- 
sponsible for supervising the pro- 
gram will also be interviewed. 

One of the features of the pro- 
gram will be a filmed statement 
from Dr. Fred Turner, acting

Editor's Notebook 

One Semester Down 

One to Go - the Right Way 

By Peggy Blanchard 
'Comber Editor 

First semester is now a thing 
of the past — recorded history — 
it can neither be altered or for- 
gotten. Grades, cuts, impressions 
are indelibly made. 

With the first day of the new 
semester many resolutions were 
to be heard— "I'm not going to 
cut class at all this semester"; 
"I'm going to do my homework 
when it is assigned"; "I'm going 
to study for exams and not just 
fake my way through, them." 

These resolves are heard each 
semester but such resolutions 
have had little bearing on beha- 
vior in the past. 

First quarter was a time to 
have fun — second quarter was the 
time to buckle down and study. 
Quarter grades in the past have 
been of little importance to many 
students. The only ones even re- 
motely worried about the out- 
come of mid-terms have been the 
social club pledges for they must 
have a 2.0 average for initiation. 

However, with the new admin- 
istrative order regarding pre- 
registration, such grades have 
assumed a new importance. 

Former Ambassador 
Starts Winter Series 
At PB Round Table 

A lecture based upon sixteen 
years of service as an American 
Ambassador in Latin America 
started the Winter Series of lec- 
tures at the Palm Beach Round 
Table, Monday, January 14. 

The Honorable Willard L. Beau- 
lac lectured on "What Latin 
America Means to the United 
States," stressing the necessity 
of more effective diplomacy. He 
also talked of the long range 
goals of the Alliance for Progress. 

Included in the lecture were re- 
marks on the Nixon trip of 1958 
and the ensuing riots as well as 
the importance and definition of 
"revolutions of rising expecta- 

A question and answer session 
followed the lecture.

More individualized aid in the 
complex planning ■ of schedules- 
regarding classes only meeting at 
one time, getting out of class in 
time for work, and planning

the early registrant. 

Those of us who remember the 
pure panic and utter confusion of 
registration can well see the bene- 
fits of this plan. 

What happens to those who are 
not able to benefit from this plan? 
They must register during the 
semester break. They register not 
according to class, standing or 
merit but according to alphabet. 
To those whose names cause them 
to register on the last day of reg- 
istration befalls the hapless chore 
of planning a schedule to include 
classes which have already closed

Ah, 7kc.Se tfrttitic heMretl 

By Rhett Ashley 

After seeing individuals around 
campus with long, unkept hair, 

\ZJ* /*>, ?? &z 

leather sandal's and heavy make- 
up, it occured to me that these 
leanings toward Bohemia could be 
expressions of inhibited artistic 

I interviewed a few such in- 
dividuals, the first being Yogi 
Klod. It seems he had estab- 
lished himself as a perfectionist 
in the field of flower arranging. 
Sitting one day in deepest medi- 
tation staring at a sunflower, he 
reached his ultimate. The sun- 
flower became a symbol for him. 
"Fire, Fire," he shouted and ran 
about his studio setting aflame 
all his dried peonies, molded 
cactii and preserved plum leaves. 
"Fire, fire," he shouted as the 
men arrived with straight jackets. 
At a local sanitarium, he 
studied interior design and re- 
portedly had the most tastefully 
padded cell in the center. Now, 
three years later and thoroughly 
rehabilitated, he is considered the 
best sculptor at Palm Beach 
Junior College. He is never seen 
without his propane torch, mer- 
rily lighting his companions cig- 
arettes while chewing on a match 

Ceramics, interior design, art 
appreciation and painting are 
offered as electives next semester. 
Perhaps you suspect you are an 
artist but are not quite sure. Why 
not come up to Ad 20 or 21 and 
speak to one of the art in- 

Sybil Shoddy was not certain 
she was an artistess. She was a 
poetess, she knew. One morning 
her father told her, "Take the TV 
antenna to the repairman after 

"But I'll have to carry it with 
me through class," she protested. 
"Take it," he ordered. 
So Sybil went skipping toward 
school with her TV antenna over 
her shoulder, singing her new

jump from my butterscotch heart,

Duncan Gives Reviews 
At Four Arts 

Watson B. Duncan, III, chair- 
man of the Communications De- 
partment, is scheduled to give a 
series of three book reviews as a 
feature of the lecture season at 
the Society of the Four Arts in 
Palm Beach. 

Mr. Duncan reviewed John 
Steinbeck's "Travel With Char- 
ley" on January 22. 

The second review of the series 
will be on Tuesday, February 19, 
at 10:30 a.m., on the second floor 
of the Four Arts Library, with a 
discussion of the top best-seller, 
"A Shade of Difference," by Allen 

Then on March 19, Mr, Duncan 
will close the series with a re- 
view of William Faulkner's last 
book, "The Keivers." 

rope from my pudding plum 

Sybil went skipping over the 
bridge and trip-^bloop into the 
frog pond. 

"Frog-pudding, shucks," she 
cursed but went right on to 
school right through an open-air 
art class. 

"Hey, a crazy mobile"— "Dig 
that frantic sculpture"— "What a 
sweet plum-pudding tree," the art 
students cried estatically as they 
admired the dripping, lily pad, 
bedecked antenna. 

"Your a genius, even" burgled 
the frenzied, art instructor. 

Miss Shoddy is now an art 
major. Her real self is showing. 
Even her poetry shows improve- 
ment. Each morning she now 
sings, "O sliuce the daniswine 
and went the timbrel round a 
tune, all about a wetzel, woudzing, 
woudzing," just before jumping 
into a lily padded frogged pond 
with a misappropriated antenna. 

Survey Emphasis 
Placed Heavily 
On Graduation 

A recent survey conducted by 
the Student Personnel Office of 
the 1962 graduating class has re- 
emphasized several points regard- 
ing the value of a junior college 
education and graduation, stated 
Dean Paul J. Glynn. 

Of the 137 former students who 
responded, out of the graduating 
class of 231, 97 are now attend- 
ing college. Twenty-eight of the 
remaining 37 students, not attend- 
ing college, at the present time, 
plan to return to school in the 
near future. 

The University of Florida, with 
34 of the responding students, 
ranks the highest in the number 
of Palm Beach Junior College 
students in attendance. Florida 
State, with 33 or one less former 
PBJC students, ranks second. 

Pratt and Whitney, with eight 
graduates, has the greatest num- 
ber of former students employed 
in various capacities. 

Nursing is the occupation claim- 
ing the most graduates — with 
eight former students employed 
in it. 

Out of the number answering 
the questionnaire by saying they 
were in attendance at a college, 
only seven students indicated that 
they had any problems in trans- 
ferring credits. 

The lectures are open to the 
public and there is no admission 

Mr. Duncan said that over one 
hundred persons attended the first 
review, including the very famous 
radio commentator, H, V. Kalten- 
born, and the PBJC alumni, Mr. 
and Mrs. Charles Willeford. 


Non- Technical Field Offers 
Abundance In Job Opportunities 

So you want to do something interesting— something that pays 
well, but prefer not to be tied to a drawing board or desk. What is 
available at PBJC which might help qualify me for such a challeng- 
ing and diversified occupation? How can one get some reasonable 
assurance that he'll succeed in landing a job once he prepares in 
this area? 

It would be trite to say the answer is simple. With a little plan- 
ning and forethought, these things can be achieved. 

We know of a non-technical field where surveys have been taken 
and the findings revealed that both male and female employees are 
needed. A recent study revealed that none of 30 colleges and univer- 
sities surveyed could fill the jobs which were available. 

Here is a sampling: The University of Georgia which graduated 
63 majors in this area could have placed three for every one 

Others : 

College No. of Grads Jobs Available 

Baylor University 12 5 to 1 

University of Colorado 21 10 to 1 

University of Missouri 75 5 to 1 

Texas University 42 2 to 1 

Many other leading schools report similar results. What's the catch? 
What about the salary? For beginners it's $85 per week and up. 

What are the qualifications one needs? If you mean college prep- 
aration, we'd say you should have average or above grades in Eng- 
lish. Also, one should be as well rounded in as many subject areas 
as possible. A few leading schools feel that it's best to specialize. 
Others advocate a variety. 

Is on-the-job training available? Yes, right here on the campus. 
The hand of welcome is extended to you to help with your school 
newspaper — The BEACHCOMBER. You can learn "the ropes" here. 
It's the best way we know of to really get acquainted with PBJC. 
You'll get a press card which will get you into the president's office 
or even the most remote broom closet. 

We'll help train you and of course there are two journalism 
courses dealing with writing for the mass media such as newspapers, 
radio, TV, and news magazines. 

Opportunity for the future is excellent. The U. S. has 8,500 weekly 
and semi-weekly papers; 1,750 dailies with a circulation of over 
58 million. There are about. 150 million radios and 50 million TV sets. 
Needless to say, it employs a few million employees — and more 
are needed. We might add that 375,000 are employed in advertising. 
They've got 11 billion dollars to spend annually — some of it can 
be yours. 

Junior College Grads Find 
Peace Corps Positions Open 

Junior college students inter- 
ested - in the Peace Corps may 
find that they fit into the com- 
munity development program of 
the Corps. 

Morp than ten per cent of the 
volunteers now .in training and 
overseas are graduates of Junior 
colleges. The Peace Corps has 
used their skills and training in 
almost every project and in every 
country where it operates. 

Dean Glynn emphasized three 
points in commenting on trans- 
fer problems: 

"It is very important for the 
students to graduate from Palm 
Beach Junior College, because in 
doing so many transfer problems 
are eliminated. 

"No institution will take more 
than 64 semester hours of college 
work regardless of the number of 
hours recorded on a student's 

"Most schools insist on an over- 
all 2.0 or "C" average on all 
work attempted by prospective 
transfer students. Also no "D's" 
or "F's" are acceptable for trans- 

"If a student remembers these 
things when thinking of transfer- 
ing to a senior institution, he 
should have a minimum of trouble 
in doing so," said Dean Glynn. 

Most Americans over 18 who 
are citizens and possess a desire 
to share what they know and are 
willing to learn from others, can 
find a wealth of opportunities in 
the Peace Corps. 

Any American citizen over- 18 
may apply to serve in the Peace 
Corps.' There is no upper age 

To apply fill out a Peace Corps 
Volunteer Questionnaire or write

This is Registration? it is Unbelievable . * . 

Starting out right . . . 

Mrs. Jean Blesh, counsels a student and advises on the courses 
needed for graduation. Problems are solved early before they arise 
at registration. 

It's not a snake dance! 

This is the scene of registration— in the past— when nerves, tem- 
pers and nice class schedules went by the board. Confusion reigned 

I-R Rulings 

The Department of Physical 
Education and Health has listed 
the following intramural eligibil- 
ity rules and regulations. 
Intramural Eligibility 
All regularly enrolled students 
in good standing of Palm Beach 
Junior College will be eligible to 
compete in intramural sports. 

Any athlete who has been de- 
clared a professional in a sport 
will be barred from that particu- 
lar sport in intramural athletics. 
An organization which uses an 
ineligible player will forfeit all 
games or events in which the 
player participates. 
Membership and Team Rosters 
To be eligible to represent an 
organization or team a player 
must be entitled to the name or 
be affiliated with the group which 
he represents. 

Unless otherwise specified, 
team squad rosters must be sub- 
mitted prior to the first official 
contest in a sport. The team of- 
ficial roster will be frozen on 
March 1. If a player's name ap- 
pears on two or more lists, the 
player must decide for himself 
which team he wishes to repre- 

Responsibility for ascertaining 
the eligibility of participants rests 
with the managers of teams and 
not with the Intramural section, 
with the following exceptions: 
(1) medical waivers or (2) stu- 
dents placed on Activity Proba- 
tion by the college.

The Benefits of 
P re-registration 

The horrors of registration depicted in the above picture 
are very vivid in the memories of a majority of the sopho- 
mores on campus. 

The blessing of the new pre-registration program is even 
more apparent to them. 

As these pictures show, tempers, nerves, sanity and free 
time are easily preserved in pre-registration. |/\l%f in F-lir/\nA

Officials Needed 

Students interested in making 
a little spending money during the 
year should contact any physical 
education instructor. 

The men's and women's intra- 
mural program needs good, re- 
sponsible and competent sports 
officials. Any student with desire 
and know-how should make his 
availability known. 

The success of the PBJC Intra- 
mural is dependent upon high 
standards and good officiating. 

Mrs. Lewis is now serving as 
secretary to the Dean of Student 
Personnel. She began working 
here at the beginning of the new 
year. On behalf of the student 
body, this paper would like to 
extend her a welcome.

Formula for A Beauty Queer 

What makes a beauty queen? 
Skin-deep beauty does not guar- 
antee triumph in a beauty 

Poise, personality, and talent 
and a pretty smile— with a slight 
show of the pearly white teeth — 
are qualities looked for in today's 
beauty queen. Of course, it doesn't 
hurt to be pretty, either — in fact, 
it comes in handy to be pretty.

Drop-out Whys 
Given in Survey 

During the course of the semes- 
ter, drops from school and classes 
increased with the total of male 
drop-outs approaching 57. 

In a recent survey which the 
Palm Beach Junior College Stu- 
dent Personnel Office conducted, 
it was found that the major cause 
of student drops from school was 
lack of finances or work conflicts. 
Other reasons given for leaving 
school were the wish to enter the 
military service, to enter another 
school or lack of interest and 
improper background. The num- 
ber of students dropping school 
for excessive absences, advanced 
study or on parent's request was 
considerably less than for any 
other reasons. 

Many of the students leaving 
the school extended a preference 
to attend at a later date. 

The classes which had the 
greatest number of drops during 
the first semester of study were 
biology-101 and mathematics- 
106. Also ranked high in student 
drop-outs were business admin- 
istration, freshman communica- 
tions, mathematics-Ill and math-

work were the greatest causes of

The contest, held Saturday, 
January 12, in the college audi-

Charmaine Knapp take second 
and third places respectively. 

Miss Brown, a sophomore ele- 
mentary education major, was 
named Miss Freshman in the 
1961-62 Miss Galleon contest. She 
is also a member of the Thi Del 
social club. 

An emotion-filled dramatic read- 
ing from "The Three Faces of 
Eve" was Miss Brown's talent. 
In it she portrayed, in a period 
of time, all of Eve's three faces. 

The runners-up rendered vocal 
selections as their talent entries. 
Miss Chepens sang "Follow Me." 
"What Kind of Fool Am I" was 
Miss Knapp's selection.

Appointments To Fill SGA Vacancies 


Vol.. XI. No. 1 I PALM BEACH JUNIOR COLLEGE, Lakh Worth. Florida February 20 196} 

#h Open ietter 



Somebody goofed! 

When did they goof? Back in the early part of the 
first semester. 

What was their goof The starting of the precedent 
of appointing Student Government officers. 

The background.'' As follows — Please note: 

The student body went to the noils and elected a 
Student Government Secretary in the spring of 1961. 
She married in the summer. 

The SGA needed a secretary. Answer — appoint one. 
It's rather easy. Who? A social club sister of the 
original secretary (keen it all in the family) . 

Problems arise. Can vou guess what problems? Well, 
it seems that the Executive Council didn't check on the 
academic eligibility of this appointee. After aonoint- 
ment, she was declared ineligible by the Student Person- 
nel Office — which had not been consulted at the time 
of her appointment. 

Problems again. What to do? Appoint another 
secretary. Keening it in the same family, of course! 

Right now a controversy arises. Was Secretary num- 
ber two declared ineligible early enough so that secre- 
tary number three could have been nut on the Freshman 
Class ballot? No one knows. Things were extremely 
cloudy at that time and have since gotten worse. 

At this point this paoer would like to take issue with 
the Executive Council's interprets tion of the word "tem- 
porary" as it was applied to this post (after all it has 
been temporary since sometime in early October). 

If this oost had been put on the Freshman class ballot 
much of the cause of our present muddle would have 
been removed and we would know who would suc- 
ceed who. (Afterall our wonderful constitution does 
call for officers of the Student Government to preside 
over meetings according to rank) . We would now have 
a Student Government president — if she had been elected 

As you know, we have lost the services of our stu- 
dent government president and vice president as well 
of the freshman class president and treasurer due to aca- 
demic ineligibility. 

Had the post of secretary been put up for election 
this problem would have been adverted. 

We could have had a SGA president at the time the 
former officers were declared ineligible and all these 
problems and all this controversy would have been 
avoided. BUT the Executive Council did not feel the 
post of secretary important enough to even get student 
approval on it. 

It's not for us to comment or SDeculate as to why 
the Council never actually bothered to take care of this 

ma tter but if anything comes out of these current 

problems it should be a lesson in responsibility of elected 
officials and trust in the voting populous. 

It was not as i f they were entirely unaware of the 
possibility of this situation arising. The constitution 
states (though this point is in dispute) that officers 
must have their grades at the quarter. Did all of the 
officers have these grades at that time? Sources say no. 
Some were in trouble at mid-term including the SGA 
president and vice president. 

Were they familiar enough with their own rules to 
know that a mention was made to quarter grades? If 
they were, why was something not done? 

These are the people that we elected. That we said 
to- Here is a budget in excess of $30,000 — dispense 
it We said: represent us as PBJC in any and all social 
functions. From them are we .judged. 

HOWEVER, the fault may be with you 1 rifc 

RFADER you who express little or no interest in 

the Student Government. YOU — who may be quali- 
fy but not willing to serve! YOU who may not 

have even bothered ro vote. iS IT? 

Executive Council Votes; 
Vetoes General Election 

Four Executive Council vacancies will be filled by appointments 
given by the remaining Council members. The date for announcing 
the appointments was set for March 7. 

This was decided at a special meeting held Tuesday, February 
12, by a bare majority of the remaining Council members. 

Lacking a quorum, the meeting was carried on almost to its 
conclusion before the fifth Executive Council member materialized 
to allow the Council to act formally. 

Called to set a date for a spe- 
cial general election, the Council 
reversed its previous actions to 
allow itself to vote to fill the open 
offices by appointment. 

The constitution provided the 
Executive Council with two alter- 
natives in this situation: it could 
call for a special election in which 
the students would choose who 
would hold these offices; or it 
could appoint the officers them- 
selves without any consultation. 
The latter course, as mentioned 
above, was accepted. 

Student Government presidency 
and vice presidency, as well as 
freshman class presidency and 
treasurer are open for applica- 

The Council will accept appli- 
cations until Thursday, February 
28 from interested students. It 
will then screen the applicants 
and announce its appointments 
or the following Thursday, March

"The BEACHCOMBER is going 
weekly," announced editor Peggy 
Blanchard at last week's general 
staff meeting. 

This issue is our weekly paper, 
announced Miss Blanchard, stres- 
sing the fact that a weekly paper 
was, at this point, experimental. 

The end of March was set as 
the time for polling staff mem- 




Constitutional amendments are 
being called for and the Student 
Government Association has set 
up a committee to investigate the 
possibility of revising the consti- 
tution and/or providing for cor- 
rect interpretation of various 

Prime bones of contention, up 
until Thursday, February 14, were 
sections eight and eleven of Ar- 
ticle V which deal with the 
powers of executive appointment 
and special elections. 

Added to the controversy on 
Thursday was a discrepancy in 
wording of Section 3, part 2, Ar- 
ticle II and Section 3, Article III, 
dealing with the minimum re- 
quirement, academically, for SGA 
officers and the times in which 
they must meet these require- 

This last discovery was made 
by Peggy Blanchard, BEACH- 
COMBER editor, as she tried to 
decipher two ambiguous phrases 
—one which dealt with academic 
eligibilty at the semester and 
one which dealt with academic 
eligibility at the quarter. 

Following the story down, Miss 
Blanchard found a copy of the 
constitution, as it was presented 
to the student body for ratification 
on April 28, 1961, in the April 26 
issue of that same year's BEACH- 

References to student eligibil- 
ity in this constitution, as it was 
presented to the student body for 
ratification, were consistent in 
that they both called for aca- 
demic eligibility at the quarter. 
This means that, according to the 
constitution, those officers who 
did not receive a 2.0 of "C" grade 
at the quarter would have been 
out of office at that time. 

"Informed sources report," 
said the editor, "that four mem- 
bers of the Executive Council did 
not attain a 2.0 average at the

bers, students and faculty for 
their reactions to the weekly edi- 
tions of the 'COMBER. 

"If reaction is favorable, 
will most likely continue pub' 
ing a weekly paper, if it is 
favorable we will revert to < 
ing out bi-weekly," rema 
Miss Blanchard. 

The cooperation of students, or- 
ganizations, faculty and adminis- 
tration in meeting deadlines was 
given as main indicators of the 
feasibility of publishing a weekly 
paper, commented the editor. 

The present concern over Stu- 
dent Government and SGA elec- 
tions were given as major rea- 
sons for this new publication

Be an Officer ---The Easy Way 

This paper will now attempt to give those aspiring politicians on 
campus a lesson on how to go about obtaining an executive appoint- 
ment to one of the Student Government vacancies: 

The first thing to do is to procure an application blank from the 
Student Personnel Office. This is not hard to do. 

Next fill out the form and submit it to Dean Crozier. She will then 
check your academic background and forward your application, If 
it is acceptable, to the Student Government. 

The next thing to do is to spend all your time between the quali- 
fying dates and the announcement of the appointment wooing the 
members of the Executive Council. Chase them— Bend their ears 
back— Call them on the phone at midnight— Send them flowers (since 
most of them are female— Take them to dinner— etc. 

After you have made yourself extremely popular (or unpopular) 
get both your friends to put in a good word for you. Have them 
follow the same line of attack as mentioned above. 

Then comes the time for the Executive Council to screen the 
applicants. (If by now they have learned the value of committees.) 

Out go all the applications of those academically ineligible. 

Then go those that are socially unacceptable. 

Then those that are unacceptable for purely prejudicial reasons. 

Then go those of the people who have made themselves extremely 
obnoxious during this pre-choosing period. 

NOW — if you have lasted all of these purges your application 
will, (may be), be considered. 

There are EIGHT remaining members of the Executive Council. 
There are SEVEN who may vote (the president— or acting president 
may not vote). 

Four votes for a majority) will supposedly carry the Council. 

Sit outside the office and pray for the appointment. The Council 
comes out — You made it — You were one of the chosen few picked 
by the chosen few. 

Now all you have to do is overcome the animosity of the student 
body that was aroused because they had no voice in your selection 
by an all school election, and you're a success. 

The best of luck to you on your term in office.

Weekly Success Up To You 

As announced on the front page, the BEACHCOMBER staff has 
decided to try publishing a weekly paper. The success or failure 
of this experiment rests with the students and faculty of the college. 

This is an experiment in the truest sense of the word— if it does 
not work we will return to our bi-weekly publication schedule. 

The responsibility for the success of this venture does not lie 
entirely with the naner's staff, for each member of the staff is a 
full-time student and must maintain his own grades and in many 
cases work outside of school for spending money. 

In order to succeed we need your help! The events of your club, 
the things you do, the speeches each faculty member makes are 

news sources for this paper but the occurrence of these happenings 

must be reported to us. 

In order for events to be published in the following Wednesday's 
paper, they must be reported to the BEACHCOMBER office no later 
than the preceding Wednesday afternoon. 

Provision for late breaking events and reporter coverage of 
events will be made for certain events, upon request. We must be 
informed of these happenings in order to cover them. 

You, of the student body and faculty, hold the success of a 
weekly BEACHCOMBER in your hands. 

If you have enough pride in this school you will see to it that 
we are informed of the news so that this weekly paper may continue. 

If the world laughs at you, laugh right back at it. It's as funny 
as you are. — Leonard Sekavec, Holyrood ( Kans. ) Gazette

Everyone it seems, is expecting 
a bitter denunciation of the Stu- 
dent Government in this column. 
Those expecting such a story 
could not be more wrong. 

I am a FIRM believer in Stu- 
dent Government and that there 
is no finer organization on the 
campus as far as I am concerned. 
But I do feel that there is a great 
deal of work that needs to be done 
on it before it can adequately 
serve the student. 

I am not going into details on 
this point. I am going to quote 
the following items dealing with 
the article appearing in other 
parts of the paper: 

The Cannons of Journalism call 
for newspapers to foster responsi- 
bility. That means to tell the 
truth as it is seen. 

The Canons also call for Free- 
dom of the Press. "Freedom of 
the press is to be guarded as a 
vital right of mankind." 

from all obligations except that 
of fidelity to the public interest is 

ACCURACY: Good faith with the 
reader is the foundation of ail 
journalism worthy of -the name. 
IMPARTIALITY: Sound prac- 
tice makes distinction clear be- 
tween news reports and expres- 
sions of opinion. News Reports 
should be free from opinion cr 
bias of any kind. 

FAIR PLAY: A newspaper 
should not publish unofficial 
charges affecting reputation or 
moral character, without oppor- 
tunity given to the accused to be 
heard; right practice demands 
the giving of such opportunity in 
all cases of serious accusation 
outside judicial proceedings. 

DECENCY: A newspaper can- 
not escape conviction of insincer- 
ity it, while professing high moral 
purpose, it supplies incentives to 
base conduct . . . publication of 
which is not demonstrably for the 
general good. 

These are the items which have 
governed the printing of any ar- 
ticles in this issue or in former 
issues or in forthcoming issues. 

It has been said that no oppor- 
tunity will be given to the Execu- 
tive Council to reply. THIS IS 
NOT TRUE. Space will be glad- 
ly given to them. All they need 
do is ask. 

As has been our policy in the 
past we will continue to give the 
SGA all possible publicity.

they could stay in the jail because 
of a lack of funds. The JC's

Classical Music 
Fine -- Morrison 

February 20, 106 3

•'Young adults today are final- 
ly getting to know about classical 
music, some way or another," 
says Scott Morrison. 

Right after his all-college per- 
formance, Monday, February 11, 
I obtained a brief interview with 
a person with a great charm and 
personality, a true artist in the 
entertainment world. 

As we spoke backstage, a slight 
British accent came out. 

"Yes, I did the majority of my 
studying in London. I guess you 
can call me a Britisher!" 

It was brought up— why hasn't 
this (his performance) been on 
T.V.? "Well, they say it is too 

Weekly Appointments 

(continued from page 1) 

This motion was amended, 
unanimously, at the February 12 
meeting and defined election to 
mean executive appointment. 
These appointed officers, it was 
stated, would remain in office 
until May when SGA officers for 
1963-G4 take over the Student Gov- 

The nronosal to define election 
as executive appointment came 
about through a discussion lead 
by Lee and Sophomore class vice- 
president, Bill Green. 

Another meeting was held Wed- 
nesday, February 13 in which Lee 
and Green proposed that the Ex- 
ecutive Council reconsider the 
move they had made in the 
"previous day's meeting. This 
request unanimously defeated by 
those members of the Executive 
Council in attendance. 

Council members attending the 
February 12 meeting were: Miss 
Leverenz, Lee, Green, sophomore 
class vice-president; Alice Neily, 
sophomore class secretary; Jean- 
ne Kalil, sophomore class treas- 
urer; and JoAnne Lowery, fresh- 
man class secretary. 


different, but this is something 
we need, something different. I 
have taped some, but that is as 
far as it got." 

Many people who are in the 
classical music field are always 
asked if they are "stuffy?" 

By no means is Scott Morrison 
stuffy. I can truly say that he is 
more of a non-conformist. He 
does what he likes! That can be 
taken as why his concerts are not 

"More than 5,000 colleges have 
seen and heard my performances 
throughout the country in the 
many long years of my practice." 

It can be said that the one true 
aim in Mr. Morrison's concerts 
is to show young adults in col- 
leges (hat it isn't boring to sit 
for an hour without moving in 
order to listen to good music and 
try to understand it. 

From one extreme to another, 
the subject of the present diy 
"good" music came up. I didn't 
think Mr. Morrison would agree, 
and I was right. 

"What is Rock 'N Roll? Just 
noise with weird voices thrown 
in to give it 'flavor'. I'm not 
degrading it, but is that what they 
call* good music??" 

For those who enjoyqd the con- 
cert, Mr. Morrison will return 
next year with something really 


(continued from page 1) 

Continuing, Miss Blanchard 
brought out the fact that Article 
V, section S called for the Stu- 
dent Government and Sophomore 
Class officers to be taking an aca- 
demic load sufficient to graduate. 
The meaning of this phrase is 
open to question. 

However, it has been assumed 
by various sources that this would 
mean, on a junior college level, 
that the person would be able to 
graduate at the end of the normal 
two years or four semesters. An- 
other interpretation given to this 
phrase is that these officers (Stu- 
dent Government and sophomore 
class) be able to graduate at the 
completion of their two semester 

This topic, as well as the topic 
of the Executive Council's au- 
thority to appoint officers was 
brought up at an Executive Coun- 
cil meeting, Thursday, February 

The fact that Dean Rachel Cro- 
zier has two copies of the SGA 
constitution, one with each 
phraseology (that of the former 
BEACHCOMBER and that of the 
Student Handbook ) further cloud- 
ed the issue. A special committee 
was appointed by Louise Lever- 
enz, acting Student Government 
president, to investigate the mat- 
ter and to report back their find- 
ings at the regular SGA meeting

Business Department 
Obtains New Equipment 

Growing pangs are being felt 
in the Business Department as it 
notes the addition of new pieces 
of modern office equipment. 

A shorthand transcription sys- 
tem is one of the new pieces. Be- 
cause there is a difference be- 
tween student dictation taking 
times this new method machine 
was procured to aid both instruc- 
tor and students. 

The machine provides for a 
shorthand transcription at a rate 
of speed which each student can 
master. Each desk is provided 
with earphones, a selector and a 
volume control. 

Three recorders with pre-re- 
corded dictations at different 
speeds are connected to the se- 
lector and the student can "tune 
in" the record and speed at which

Pride in one's school was given 
as another reason for this move. 
It was felt that this school, being 
the oldest in the state should be 
one of the few with a weekly 
paper, remarked Miss Blanchard 
fo the staff. 

As a sidelight, she added, that 
to her knowledge the only other 
weekly junior college paper in the 
state of Florida was the Wooden 
Horse at St. Petersburg JC. (The 
Horse went weekly last fall. >

six page paper to be printed and

he can best work. 

Robert Batson, department 
chairman, commented that few 
schools have this equipment and 
that this school was very proud 
to be able to have it. 

An Address-o-Graph, donated 
free of charge by the Palm Beach 
County Commission, is the second 
piece of new equipment in the 
Business Department. 

"We are the only Business De- 
partment in the state of Florida 
with this type of equipment," re- 
marked Mr. Batson. 

Comprising the Address-o- 
Graph equipment is an automa- 
tic typewriter, a Graph-o-Type 
and an Address-o-Graph. 

The automatic typewriter may 
be used for letters, addressing 
envelopes and other such work. 
The material is typed on it and 
a tape is punched simultaneously. 
The tape may be run back 
through and an exact copy of the 
work can be retyped by the ma- 
chine at approximately 120 words 
a minute. 

The Graph-o-Type types this 
material on a metal plate. This 
plate can be run through the 
automatic typewriter and as 
many copies as desired can be 

These metal plates can also be 
run through the Address-o-Graph 
proper. This Address-o-Graph 
has many purposes including 
those of addressing mail, work- 
ing on payrolls, and doing ac- 
counting problems. 

"On this campus the Address-o- 
Graph will be used to aid the 
Alumni Office and for demonstra- 
tion purposes," stated Mr. Batson. 

"The react'on= of the student 
body and faculty and their sug- 
gestions will be gratefully re- 
ceived as will their news stories," 
stated the editor. 

"In fact, we (the paper's staff) 
cannot make a success of this 
enterprise alone. If we don't get 
the support of those we are try- 
ing to serve we will discontinue 
the effort to serve them in this 
manner," the editor remarked in

Next Week 

Archibald MacLeish's Pulitzer 
Prize winning play, "J. B.," will 
be staged February 28, March 
1-2 by the Palm Beach Junior 
College Players in the college 

A difficult play, "J. B." pre- 
sents drama director Frank 
Leahy with one with one of his 
biggest challenges. 

Leahy will get plenty of help 
on stage in this production from 
Watson B. Duncan hi, a noted 
lecturer and sneaker in the area 
and has also gained widespread 
reputation as an actor. 

Duncan is best remembered for 
his roles opposite Burt Reynolds 
in "See How The Run" and "Man 
in a Dog Suit." 

The story concerns two veteran 
actors who are now working as 
vendors in a circus that has been 
traveling throughout the world 
presenting the ancient story of 
the Book of Job. 

After the performance one 
night, the two men enter the cir- 
cus ten intent on playing the story 
themselves. They are cued by 
a prompter from offstage to start 
the play. 

Assuming the roles of God and 
Satan they begin the tale, but the 
man who appears is not the an- 
cient Job, but a modern day 
J. B., named in the current fash- 
ion in business names. 

The story that unfolds is a 
story with modern setting and 
modern tragedies, and J. B.'s 
search is to find the reasons for 
his sufferings, and find his true 

Steve Jones, will play the part 
of Nickles, who assumes the role 
of Satan, and Al Seibert will play

obtainable at the college box of- 
fice and may be obtained in per-

member of the winning team. 
Also 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place med- 
als will be presented to the indi- 
viduals that roll: high game, high 
series, and high average. 

Importance of 
l-R Meetings 

The I.R. Board would like to 
clarify the meaning of organiza- 
tional meetings. They do what the 
name implies — organizes. 

It tries to co-ordinate and com- 
municate to each individual team, 
the how, when, where and why for 
the sports activity in each season. 
They answer many things and set 
up the playing schedules, clearing 
up the rules, answering all ques- 
tions of participants and their 
team captains or their represen- 

Meetings are attended either by 
a team captain from each team 
or one of its representatives. The 
penalty for not having a team 
representative at the meeting is 
expulsion from play.

Added to PE 

Mrs. Elizabeth Erling, chair- 
man of the Physical Education 
department announced that a new 
member has been added to the 
staff for second semester. Mrs.

Mrs. Meyer, who did her grad- 
uate work at the University of

Lores of Oniric Gillis', etc) 


As was pointed out hist week, one would think that with til' 
the progress we have made in the- education game, something 
might have been done by now about roommates. But no. The 
roommate picture has not brightened one bit since Rtlnui 
(ioodpimple founded the first American college. 

(Contrary to popular belief, Harvard was not the first. Mr. 
(Ioodpimple started his institution some To years earlier. And 
quite an institution it was, let me tell you! Mr. (loodpimj»k" 
built schools of liberal arts, fine arts, dentistry, and ttumiiui. 
lie built a lacrosse stadium that seated 102,000. Everywhere 
on Minimis was emblazoned the stirring Latin motto ('A \'K 
MUSHI— "Watch out for moose." The student union contained 
H bowling alley, a clock, and a Hi-chair barber shop. 

♦h Szd&w 4mb', f^ytim 

(It was this last feature — the barber shop— that, alas, 
brought Mr. Goodpimple's college to an early end. The student 
body, being drawn From the nearby countryside, was composed 
chiefly of Pequots and Iroquois who, alas, had no need of a 
barber shop. They braid their hair instead of cutting it, and as 
for shaving, they don't. The barber, Trcmblatt Follicle by name, 
grew so depressed staring all the time at Hi empty chairs that 
one day his mind finally gave way. Seizing his vibrator, he ran 
outside and shook the entire mini pun till it crumbled to dust. 
This later became known as Pickett's Charge.) 

Hut I digress. We were discussing ways for yen and your 
roommate to stop hating each other. This is admittedly diffi- 
cult but not impossible if you will both bend a bit, give a little. 

I remember, for example, my own college days (Beiiil/,, 'OS). 
My roommate was, 1 think you will allow, even less agroeahle 
than most, lie was a Tibetan named Ringading whose native 
customs, while indisputably colorful, were not entirely endear- 
ing. Mark you, I didn't mind so much the gong lie struck mi 
the hour or the string of firecrackers he set off on the half-hour. 
1 didn't even mind his singeing chicken feathers every dusk ami 
daybreak, What I did mind was that he singed them in my hat. 

To he fair, he was not totally taken with some of my habits 
either— especially my hobby of collecting water. I had no jars 
at the time and just 'had to' stack the water any-old-whcre. 

Well sir, things grew steadily cooler between Ringading and 
me, and they might have gotten actually ugly had we not each 
happened tti receive u package from home one day. Ringticttng 
opened his package, paused, smiled shyly at me, and offered 
me ti gift. 

"Thank you," I said. "What is it'.'" 

"Yak butter," he said. "You put it in your hair. In Tibetan 
we call it grec see kidsiuff," 

"Well now, that's mighty friendly," I said and offered him ; , 
gift from my package. "Now you must have one of mine." 

"Thank you," he said. "What is this called?" 

"Marlboro Cigarettes," I said and held a match for him. 

He puffed. "Wow !" hesaid. "This sure beats chicken leathers !" 

"Or anything else you could name," I said, lighting my own 

And as we sat together and enjoyed that fine flavorful 
Marlboro tobacco, that pure white Marlboro filter, a glow u f 
good fellowship came over us— a serene conviction that no 
quarrels exist between men that will not yield to the warmth ( ,f 
honest good will. I am proud to say that Ringading and I re- 
main friends to this day, and we exchange cards each Christmas 
and each Fourth of July, firecrackers. 8,mMM«wna»M 

Wherever you or your 

roommate may be — on any cainp t ,s 


in am/ city, town, or hamlet in any state of the Union-

Circle K Offers Service 
Opportunities to Interested Men 

By Bob Lm 
Staff Wri»»r 

Circle K invites male students 
interested in serving their school, 
city and fellows men to give a 
little of their time for such serv- 

Many misconceptions exist as 
to what Circle K is and does. It 
is not a social club, and it is not 
in competition for pledges with 
social clubs. 

Circle K is a college service 
club similar to Kiwanis Interna-

Democratic — Almost ! 

The Executive Council is to be congratulated on its new 
democratic proposal of an alt-school meeting to discuss 
candidates for office. . 

This proposal should have been made two weeks ago 
and a great deal of furor would have been avoided 

However — one thing still poses a problem. How much 
influence will the thoughts of the students who attend tills 
meeting have on the results of the "election . 

How great a correlation will there be between the dis- 
cussion and the results announced by the Executive Council 

At the time of this writing, five Executive _ Council 
vacancies are to be filled. This means *at a majority of 
three votes will swing the election. There is little doubt that 
no unanimity will be found. 

'"Three people i 

This is a tremendous responsibility for three people 

How can they vote each vote according to his or her 
beliefs as well as according to the beliefs of his or her 
constituents?— Especially if these beliefs are diametrically 


It remains to be seen! 

Perhaps the Council will realize this and go one step 
farther and let the student body have a direct voice in the 
selection of their officers. 

This may be accomplished through the Student Con- 
gress, if through no other means. 

At least the blame for the mistakes made will be spread 
on forty or more people instead of on seven. The percentages 
are better with this proposal. 

It would even be more democratic and we are trying 
to be democratic in this "election". 

For Those Who 
And Need Good 

By Pierce Leavitt 
Staff Writer 

Ever since Sid Edmond Hilary 
came out with his famous reason 
for climbing mountains, one is 
hard put to find any climbers 
who climb mountains for any rea- 
son more original than, "because 
they are there." 

If ever someone were to ask 
these climbers what they would 
do if the mountains were not 
there, they would have difficulty 
with the answers (as Hilary had 
made no comment on this ques- 

One might well believe the best 
they could come up with would 
be: "my father wanted me to 
join his chicken-plucking agen- 
cy," or "I would have gone to 
Harvard and become president," 
or even "I would have gone to 

These are, however, practical 
answers and stray from the fine, 
nonsenical humor of, "I climb 
mountains because they are 
there. ' ' 

Since Sir Edmund has not 
offered an answer in his own 
understanding style, to the afore- 
mentioned question the BEACH- 
COMBER will here attempt to so 
aid the potential mountain climb- 
er by giving these comebacks to 
this hypothetical question which 

Climb Mountains 
Reasons For It 

may be thrown at them, from 
any quarter, at any time. 

These suggestions are: 

"I'd let my beard grown 
in protest." 

"I'd stick beans in my 

"I'd dig holes I could climb 
out of." 

"I'd shave my beard in 

• "I'd take the beans out of 
' my nose." 

"I'd go to Persia and be- 
come a Persian." or 

"■I'd go to Perth (Aus- 
tralia) and become a Perth- 
(but that ith thomething elthe.)

From the Executive Council . . . 

Student Body of Palm Beach Junior College: 

The Executive Council of Palm Beach Junior College wishes to 
announce that the following offices are to be fulfilled: Student 
Government president and vice-president, sophomore class president, 
and freshman class president and treasurer. 

In order to qualify for any one of the above offices, a student 
must submit an application to Dean Crozier no later than 10:00 a.m. 
on Thursday, February 28. 

The Executive Council will hold an open meeting at 3:30 p.m. 
on March 4 in the school auditorium; interested students are 
urged to attend this meeting to voice their opinion on the candidates 
for the vacated offices. 

On March 7, at 7:30 p.m., an election will be held in the Executive 
Council to fill the previously stated vacated offices. The Council 
will take into consideration the opinions of the student body. 

The Executive Council has taken the above procedure for the 
following reasons: 

This authority has been deemed to the Executive Council by the 
Student Government Association Constitution in Article V, Section 11, 
which states that "The Executive Council may appoint temporary 
officers to fill vacancies until such time as an election is held." 

If an all-school election were held, it would necessitate extended 
vacancies in these vacated offices. 

The Executive Council feels that students would hesitate to place 
themselves as candidates because of the financial and the time 
consuming aspects of campaigning for such a short term of office. 

The Student Government Association earnestly petitions for the 
support and the co-operation of the entire student body.

Executive Council 


LEGIAN, University of Rich- 
mond, Richmond, Virginia, has 
a suggestion for those of you who 
like to gamble on a sure thing: 

Pick out 10 of your closest 
friends and be nice to them. 
Within the next five years, seven 
of them will be involved in traf- 
fic accidents, and maybe traffic 
deaths. And death is SO perman- 


To me the Executive Council 
has only such powers as are ex- 
pressly granted to it by the Con- 
stitution of the Association or 
such inferred powers as are rea- 
sonably necessary to carry out 
powers expressly granted. 

Certain members of the Council 
were forced to resign because 
they did not meet academic qual- 

In the case of such a vacancy, 
several choices were open to the 
remaining members of the Coun- 
cil. The following choices were 


1. Under Article V, temporary 
officers may be appointed by 
them to fill the vacancies until 
such time as the next election 
shall be held; or 

2. If they deem it necessary 
they "shall" call a special elec- 
tion to fill such of the vacancies 
as they shall deem necessary; or 

3. They may allow the vacan- 
cies to continue until the next 
annual elections. 

In" selecting our choices, we 
were afforded a reasonable dis- 
cretion, although it seems in the 
general spirit of the Constitution 
that offices shall be filled 
wherever reasonably practicable 
by popular election of the general 
voting members and not by ap- 

However, we have decided to 
appoint officers to fill the vacan- 
cies. For my part I have voted 
as I did for the following reasons: 

There is a need for officers to 
represent the prospective posi- 

tions especially the student gov- 
ernment president's position. 

Only a short time remains un- 
til the terms of office will end for 
the Executive Council; therefore, 
we unanimously chose to make 
"tentative" appointments. 

Two generals elections so close 
together would disrupt the school 
and possibly make the whole 
idea of elections a joke to some. 

Some Executive Council mem- 
bers feel that the best person for 
the Student Government Associa- 
tion presidency would be one 
with the experience of having 
worked with the Executive Coun- 
cil, someone they are sure they

U J. B." Opening 
Thursday Night 

By John Rossello 

The scene is a traveling circus which has been on the roads of 
the world for a long time playing the ancient Book of Job. The time 
is after the night's performance, and the tent is deserted. 

As the calliope music fades and the last circus workman 
leaves, two veteran actors, reduced to the roles of vendors in the 
circus, enter the tent; they have decided to play the play them- 
selves as they think it should be played. 

As actors, they are naturally dissatisfied with how the perform- 
ances have been going. 

Mr. Zuss assumes the role of God, and Mr. Nickles assumes the 

role of Satan. They take up the masks of God and Satan and make 

the wager of the Book of Job, as the Satanmask boldly predicts: 

"But put forth thine hand now and touch all that he hath . . . 

and he will curse thee to thy face!" 

The Godmask answers him: "Behold! All that he hath is in thy 
power! Only . . . upon himself ... put not forth thy hand!" 

But the hero of this play does not come out of the Bible; he is a 
modern Job and is called J.B. after the modern style in business 

The story comes not from the 
Bible, but from the present — and 
Job is made to suffer modern 
tragedies. This is the argument 
of the play, written by Archibald 

The play is "J.B." The play 
won the Pulitzer Prize for play- 
writing in 1959. It is a play which 
presents Drama Director Frank 
Leahy with one of his biggest 

It is also a challenge, perhaps 
moreover, to the student actors, 
who must tell the story of this 
play. The rewards to both will 
lie in how well this play can be 

The play is moved by Zuss and 
Nickles, and these two, portrayed 
by Watson B. Duncan III and 
Steve Jones, must capture a per- 
fect rhythm; a perfect mood. 

Al Seibert will assay the role 
of J.B. and Anne Ellen Quincey 
the role of his wife Sarah, who 
together face disaster after dis- 
aster as Satan rains agony on 
J.B.'s family. 

MacLeish has described J.B. 
as "not a particularly devout 
man. But he is, at the beginning 
of the play, prosperous, powerful, 
possessed of a lovely wife, fine 
children and he is aware as he 
could hardly help being, that 
God has made 'an hedge about 
him and about his house and 
about all that he hath on every 
side.' " 

Job was, by witness of God 
himself, a perfect and upright 
man, and his search was for the 
meaning of his afflictions. To 
J.B. there is no reason for all his 
sufferings: no reason the mind, at 
least, could grasp. 

Acting as symbols throughout 
the play are the circus roust- 
abouts, who assay the role of 
Satan's messengers — who bear 
the news of death to J.B. — and 
later take on the roles of Job's 
comforters; bringing Job modern 
answers to his plea: "Show me 
my guilt, God!" 

The roustabouts are symbols 
which attempt to show that the 
same people who bring bad news 
are also those that try to com- 
fort. The roles will be played by 
Bill Parley, Preston McGee and 
John Rossello. 

Other roles in the play are 
taken by Maureen Mahoney, as 
the Girl; Bob Lydiard as J.B.'s 
son Danny; Sharon Messer and 
Eileen Henn as the maids, and 
the five women, survivors of a 
bombing, are portrayed by Mary 
Nemec, Mrs. Botticelli; May Kel- 
ler, Mrs. Adams; Brenda Pills- 
bury, Mrs. Murphy; Lynne 
Skreczko, Miss Mabel, and Ear- 
liene Witman, Mrs. Lesure. Mary 
Ann Greiser will play Jolly. 

The curtain time is 8:14 p.m. 
February 28, March 1-2. Tickets. 
are obtainable at the box office.

fore the nights of the perform-

With. Fingers Crossed— 
JB Goes into Production 


Frank Leahy, director of the 
forthcoming production of "J.B." 
by the Palm Beach Junior College 
Players at the college auditorium 
on February 21 is keeping his 
fingers crossed. 

The play, which is a re-telling 
of the Biblical story of Job in 
terms of a modern business-man's 
trials, endured severe tribula- 
tions during its long New York 
run. On the day that it opened, 
every major newspaper in New 
York was closed by a strike, 
blocking off the usual channels 
for advising theatre-goers that 
the play was running. None of its 
reviews, which were outstanding, 
could be printed until after the 
strike was settled, three weeks 

Still another disaster occurred 
later in the run: Pat Hingle, who 
starred in the title role of J. B., 
met with a freak accident climb- 
ing out of a stalled elevator one 
night, which resulted in his hos- 
pitalization and replacement in 
the cast. 

Looking on the brighter side, 
however, Mr. Leahy points out 
that despite these handicaps the 
play ran to capacity audiences in 
New York for eleven months, won 
the Pulitzer Prize, and has since 
been produced without unusual 
mishaps in many amateur and 
stock productions. Just to be on 
the safe side, Al Seibert, who 

plays the title role in PBJC's pro- 
duction, has been cautioned not 
to walk under ladders, climb out 
of elevators or indulge in unusual 
exertions during the play's run. 


"Americanism versus Commu- 
ism" was the February produc- 
tion of College Showcase. This 
production was postponed one 
week and was seen Sunday, 
February 24. 

"Shamrocks and Spring" is 
slated to be the March College 
Showcase production and will be 
seen on WPTV-Channel 5, Sun-

February 21 and each sextet 
played two matches that night. 

Phi Da Di, (Black) Circle K 
and the defending champion Mis- 
fits were the only teams to win 
both their matches. 

Phi Da Di (black) defeated the 
Hurricanes (15-0) to (15-0). Their 
second match proved to be a 
little tougher as Phi Da Di (Red) 
gave them quite a battle before 
succumbing (15-8), (6-15), and 

Circle K made quick work of 
the Hurricanes and Chi Sig, beat- 
ing both teams by identical 15-0, 
15-0 scores. 

The Misfits dropped their first 
game to the Tornadoes (14-16) 
but came back strong to win the 
match with games of (15-8) and

Dates Changed 

Harris McGirt announced that 
men's intramural golf and ten- 
nis starting dates have been 
changed from the previously 
scheduled times. 

Golf initially scheduled for 
March 8 has been rescheduled 
for April 19. Mr. McGirt said 
that since golf was an off-campus 
activity it would be financially 
wiser to set up a date when the 
green fee will not be as expen- 
sive as they are during the tour- 
ist season. 

Tennis has been moved up from 
April 19 to March 21 to make 
room for golf.

VOL. XI, No. 13 PALM BEACH JUNIOR COLLEGE. Lake Worth, Florida 

Program Set 

A new hotel-motel management 
program, first of its kind in 
PBJC and in the state will begin 
nest semester. 

Dr. Paul Graham has outlined 
the curriculum for the new pro- 
gram which will make use of a 
number of related courses al- 
ready being offered. 

The program will offer 10 the 
student a degree of associate in 
hotel-motel management or hotel- 
motel food service management 
on completion of the two-year 

It provides basic credits that 
could be applied to a four-year 
degree in the field at Florida 
State University or other univer- 
sities offering similar programs. 

It was also stated by Dr. Gra- 
ham that motel, hotel and restau- 
rant representatives pledged help 
in providing professional lectur- 
ers and job placement, and that 
an additional teacher will be 
placed in the Home Economics 

This new program will help the 
student in entering any field of 
the hotel, motel or restaurant 
positions ranging from hotel man- 
ager to supervisor in a kitchen. 

Thi Del Blood 
Drive Slated for 
March 13 

Thi Del Women's Social Club 
has scheduled its spring semester 
blood drive for March 13 in the 
first aid clinic. 

Blood donated by PBJC stu- 
dents and faculty is stored in the 
Palm Beach County Blood Bank 
where any student, faculty mem- 
ber or their families are eligible 
to use the supply. 

Blood may be donated between 
8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. and quali- 
fied nurses will be on hand to 
supervise. "I Gave" pins will be 
given to those students who do- 
nate blood and "I Tried" buttons 
will be given for those who of- 
fered but weren't eligible. 

The drive is in its eighth year 
and over 400 pints have been do- 
nated. An average drive nets 60 
to 80 pints. 

Thi Del's girls supply the bed 
sheets and the Palm Beach Coun- 
ty Red Cross supplies the mat- 
tresses and beds used for the 
one-day blood drive. 

An unexpected candidacy switch took place in the last days of 
qualifications for the open SGA appointments. 

Leading the switch was Donald Deakin who changed his appli- 
cation from that of applying for SGA president to applying for the 
Sophomore class presidency. The post was vacated by Robert Lee 
when he declared his intentions of seeking higher office. 

John Holmes, announced candidate for SGA vice ; president, be- 
came Lee's opposition for the post of SGA president by changing his 
application on. the last day of filing. 

Seeking his first Student Gov- 
ernment post, Holmes brings in 
experience with the I-R Board, 
of which he is currently chair- 
man. He also recently was se- 
lected to serve as Sports Editor 
for the Beachcomber. 

Lee has served as Sophomore 
class president, is a member of 
Phi Rho Pi and Circle K. He was

Ecuadorian Students 
Visit Campus 

The 12 Ecuadorian students 
who toured the PBJC campus 
February 21, seemed fascinated 
by American women. 

One student even asked: "Why 
are all American women so 
beautiful?" They said that every- 
where they went on their two- 
week visit in the Palm Beaches 
they saw very fascinating and at- 
tractive women. And given the 
key to the City of West Palm 
Beach and the red carpet treat- 
ment in the entire county, they 
had plenty of territory for ob- 

Their visit on campus gave 
PBJC's Spanish students a 
chance to try out their lingusitic 
skill on real live South Ameri- 
cans. Several coeds were ob- 
served chatting with the young 
Latin Americans in their native 
tongue — and they didn't seem 
to mind a bit. 

The camnus tour was under the 
direction of Paul Glynn, dean of 
student personnel. Some of the 
members of Friendship 90 were 
among those volunteers who 
showed the visitors around. 

Among those guiding the visi- 
tors around were: Denise Kauf- 
man, Judy Canipe, Mark Garnett, 
Judy McManus, Terry Peet, 
Henri Isabella and Lloyd Bidik. 

The trip to North America was 
a return visit by the Ecuadorians 
who had been visited last sum- 
mer by the Palm Beach High 
School choir, Friendship 90, when 
it toured South America. They 
were quartered here for their 

Phi Theta Kappa Plans to Tap 
Students at Assembly Today 

Phi Theta Kappa has an- 
nounced that there are some 75 
students eligible to be tapped at 
this semester's ceremony. The in-

o'clock, March 6. 

The entertainment will be pre-

The twelve young men, who 
will enter college in another 
month, were accompanied by 
their high school professor, Jose 
Bodero Quiros. They left this area 
February 23 for Miami where 
they will remain a few days be- 
fore going home to prepare for 
college entrance examinations. 

One student, who spoke English 
fluently, explained that their 
schools are organized similarly to 
ours; they have an equivalent to 
our grammar and high schools 
and then a four year university. 
However, they have no junior col- 
leges as in America, he said. 

Professor Quiros expressed the 
hope that the good-will tour of 
the 12 would serve as a prece- 
dent and that others would fol- 
low and thereby cement relations 
with our two countries. He said 
he hopes the boys will again 
visit this country, perhaps con- 
ducting a similar tour of their 

Those eligible for tapping have 
proved their scholastic ability by- 
having a three point average for 
the previous semester and by 
maintaining an overall three point 
average for all college work. 
These students have also been 
evaluated to be in good moral 
and ethical standing.

"Private" Council 
Meeting Held 

Four representatives of the 
BEACHCOMBER, trying to cover 
last Wednesday's Executive 
Council session, were politiely 
ejected because the council said 
it was enacting no legislation. 

The 10 o'clock meeting was 
barred to the press after the four 
staff members had entered the 
council chamber. 

One council member explained 
to the representatives that since 
they planned to enact no legisla- 
tion, they wished to have a "pri- 
vate" meeting. 

Council members said they 
planned to mull certain budget 
appropriations. Council member 
Alice Neily remarked after the 
BEACHCOMBER staffers entered 
that "I think this should be a 
private meeting." 

This puzzled the staff members, 
because no mention of a closed 
meeting had been made in the 
daily bulletin announcing the ses- 

The Council evidently has the 
right to hold closed executive 
sessions: however no legislation 
may be enacted in such meetings. 
This is a. new precedent this 
year since in the past Council 
meetings were open to the press 
and the public. 

No motions were made to close 

the meeting officially. Sophomore 

class vice president Bill Green 

said a motion was not required

XUctfon fray" 

Tomorrow is "election day". 

It is the day in which seven members of the Executive 
Council will sit down and choose from among 1 1 candidates 
THEIR choice for SGA president and vice president, sopho- 
more class president, and freshman class president and treas- 

Special elections were not called for because "The Ex- 
ecutive Council feels that students would hesitate to place 
themselves as candidates because of the financial and the time 
consuming aspects of campaigning for such a short term of 
office." (Statement from acting SGA president Louise Lev- 
erenzj . 

This seems to be a valid reason BUT — in the year 
1959-60 the sophomor^ class lost it president and vice presi- 
dent at the turn of the semester. Were these offices filled by 
appointment? NO! A special election was held on February 
19, 1960 and a sophomore class president and vice president 
were elected by the student body. The candidates cam- 
paigned for the office, too. 

As a side-light — the ofiicers elected to the sophomore 
class presidency and vice presidency did not get their pictures 
in the yearbook as having served; nor did they get it men- 
tioned under their class pictures that they had served. But 
they campaigned and were ELECTED. 

A special election was called to fill sophomore class 
offices. If special elections were called to fill these offices 
why can't the highest office on campus be filled in like 

We will admit that at this late date a special election 
is not feasible BUT — grades came out on the 28th of Janu- 
ary, a full week before second semester began, why didn't 
the Executive Council meet during that interval and make 
plans to conduct special elections? 

If they had done so, elections could have been held by 
the end of February, at the latest, and much haggling could 
have been avoided. 

But, a meeting was not held until February 7 to dis- 
cuss the matter. Not much was discussed as to how vacancies 
were to be filled at that time and another meeting was not 
held until the following Tuesday, February 12. 

Each time they held a meeting and did not decide any- 
thing the feasibility of a special general election dwindled. 
The SGA constitution calls for a two week qualifying period 
and then a week of campaigning generally precedes elections.-' 

Why was nothing decided earlier? 'S 

One answer forwarded was that the Executive Council, 
guided by Miss Leverenz (a very capable secretary) was try- 
ing to imitate the actions and manner of former president 
Tom Wells. 

At this point we would like to digress and comment on 
the very capable leadership the Council enjoyed under Tom. 
It has been said that Tom could drop a subject into a meet- 
ing, avoid discussion on it, say "let's have a unanimous vote 
on this" and get it! 

This, if true, is a very remarkable thing. It is a tribute 
to the capability of Tom — it is derogatory to the Council 
members in that they should have at least asked a question 
or two on some subjects before following blindly. However, 
Tom was the Executive type who could get such things 
through with ease. He was a very capable leader whose 
future success seems virtually assured. 

This digression was inserted just to' give you an idea 
of the type of leader the Council was trying to imitate. Un- 
fortunately they could not succeed in imitating him. There 
is only one Tom Wells and that is as it should be. 

He was no longer SGA president and the Council 
members should have realized that and should have attempted 
to conduct the Council in their own manner and not have 
tried imitation, for such imitation rarely succeeds. 

"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" but it does 
not cause extreme efficiency in the running of an organization. 
This fact has been well proven of late. 

We do not feel that the Executive Council is right in 
its actions. We do acknowledge that the present constitution 
does give them the legal right to appoint officials. The moral 
right, we do not feel, is given them. 

We will work with the newly appointed officers. We 
will also work co change the constitution so that such a 
situation will not occur again. It should not happen again. 

Although we can do nothing about this present situation 
we can work toward the upcoming elections in late April 
or early May. We can search out and encourage QUALI- 
FIED and COMPETENT people to run for office. We 
can campaign for them. And above all. we can VOTE for 
the best QUALIFIED candidates.

Purpose of Newspaper 
In Doubt on Campus 

By Peggy Blanchard 

What is the purpose of a news- 
paper? That is a good question on 
this campus. If some people had 
their way, the newspaper would 
be a non-effective story teller of 
past history — as it has, on oc- 
casion, been in the past. 

However, the staff feels that' 
there is a much higher purpose 
to the paper — a calling given to 
all those who have the affliction 
popularly known as "printer's ink 
in the blood". This paper is to 
be "the Voice of Palm Beach 
Junior College." 

Regardless of consequences, we 
- must tell what has happened. 
We must tell it in a forth-right 
manner. The facts will not be 
slanted as they are given in news 

However, it is the right of 
every newspaper to editorialize, 
to give opinion, and to interpret 
the news for the reader. It is be- 
cause the reader may not know 
the background or surrounding 
circumstances, we must do this. 
It is our obligation. 

The Executive Council feels 
that the paper is against it. Cer- 
tain individuals feel the same 
way. The paper, as such is not 
against anyone or organization. 
Neither is the paper's staff. 

It is felt that the Executive 
Council has erred many times. It 
is further felt that the Council is 
not sacred, is not divine, it not 
far above and beyond criticism; 
just as the paper is not above 

rt is the duty of the paper to 
the student body to make sure 
that the Executive Council "walks 
the straight and narrow" just as 
the Council and the student body 
must see that the press abides 
by its by-laws and creed. 

In this situation, it seems to be 
the overwhelming opinion of var- 
ious sources that the paper is 
right in bringing this matter to 
the attention of the students. 

Perhaps in another situation, 
the Executive Council may be felt 
right by a majority of the stu- 
dents. In that case the paper will 
admit its error and make amends. 

It should be remembered, how- 
ever, that while the errors of 
the Executive Council have, in 
the past, gone unnoticed by many 
sources, the errors of the paper 
are in print for 2,000 plus people 
to see. 

It is because of this fact that 
the paper does not go off "half- 
cocked" as many people seem to 
feel. Careful consideration and 
research go into the formation of 
the paper's editorial policy. 

The editorial policy of the pa- 
per is considered by staff mem- 
bers to be right. Because of the 
long hours and hard work put in 
on a weekly paper the staff 
feels that it has the right to edi- 
torialize. It feels that it has the 
right to be heard. It also feels 
that it has the right to have 
criticism told to its face, and 
not behind its back. 

The paper is not entirely one- 
sided despite many popular be- 
liefs along that line. Its editorial 
columns and its space for Letters 
to the Editor are open to all — in- 
cluding Executive Council mem- 
bers — to use, if they desire to 
do so. All that is asked is that 
contributors meet our stated

Pledges Start Rigors, 
Lounge Echoes Sound 

By Bonnie McChesney 
Staff Writer 

Beginning Monday, February 
25, the student lounge and the 
halls of the campus echoed with 
sounds such as ... . 

"Hey pledge! Run over to the 
Science Building and. find out 
what time it is." 

"I suppose some people don't 
hear very well by YOU better 
start learning! Get over here!!" 
"What?! You don't have any 
snatches?!! You better find some 
in 20 seconds or you've HAD it!!" 
It's that time of year when the 
social clubs members achieve 
-.ireat delight in sending their 
pledges on small errands; when 
the pledges suffer from nail- 
liting and shattered nerves. 

The men who are now pledges 
will undoubtedly learn many 
(hings at this time: 

how to run faster 

how to dance 

how to carry 5 cokes in 

one hand 
how to clean off a license 

how to clean a car 
how to be alert 
how to sing (although this 
is doubtful). 
The women pledges on the oth- 
tr hand, will learn how to: 
strike matches 
say "Miss" 100 time a day 
be an experienced sand- 
wich, sweet roll, coke, 
gum and candy carrier 
be an expert cleaner of 

Naturally, many more things 
are involved but these are a few 
prime examples. The main thing 
to remember, pledges, is that it's 
all in good fun and that that per- 
son ordering you around did the 
same thing one or two semesters 
ago. There is one essential factor 
— never say "I can't" — you DO 
it! It's worthwhile and very in- 
teresting! ! !!

Not only was it loud enough to 
be heard throughout most of the 
campus, but it was also enter- 

There were at least three hun- 
dred people there at one time and 
probably a lot more, who came 
in and out, who saw the perform- 
ance. It can be said to be enter- 
taining because most people 
seemed to enjoy it to a great 

People were asked to dance 
by the band leader at the start 
of the performance but during 
the first hour no one danced, and 
perhaps only one or two couples 
ever got enough energy to dance. 
The reason no one danced is per- 
haps not known but it could be 
for many reasons. 

Perhaps they were so involved 
in the magnetism of the band that 
they couldn't break the trans- 
fixation the band held them in. 
Or perhaps they were tired, too 
shy, or just plain ignorant to 
dancing to jazz beats. 

At any rate it attracted a lot 
more people than there were 
chairs and they seemed to have 
enjoyed it to some extent. 

It is a good idea to bring cul- 
tural entertainment to PBJC be- 
cause it gives students a good 
education outside the classroom. 
Of course there are some stu- 
dents to whom culture is an out- 
side word but they might get

Council Meeting 

(Continued from page 1) 

and the representatives were 
asked to leave. 

Editor's Note: We will admit 
that our staffers left the meet- 
ing, as gentlemen, before they 
were officially asked to leave by 
way of a motion. 

However, the daily bulletin said 
"important business" was to be 
discussed at this meeting. It is 
wondered why the press could 
not report the discussion of such 
business. Straight news stories, 
contrary to some beliefs will be 
given to the Council. 

Our staffers were there in or- 
der to get this news so that the 
student body could be informed 
of the actions taken by the Coun- 
cil. It must be remembered that 
they said they were dealing with 
budgetary matters. 

It is felt that the student body 
should be able to know what is 
happening to their money. 

We would like to thank the 
people who made it possible for 
The Tommy Dorsey Band to per- 
form on our campir. Perhaps 
they can be called back again in 
the future or perhaps another fine 
group will come. 

This possibly could add -some 
spice to the culture of the col- 
lege and give some useful ex- 
periences to the students.

Intercollegiate Activity 

Debate-A Sport of Long Standing 

By Donald Deakin 
Feature Editor 

The only intercollegiate activity at Palm Beach Junior College is 
debate — an activity of long standing. Debate is a sport and like any 
sport, there are training sessions each week throughout the year 
from which debating experience is gained. 

At the training sessions the topic is defined, analyzed, and dis- 
cussed. After several weeks of vigorous training, tryouts are held 
to select the varsity squad. 

The junior college debating teams have three levels of activity: 
debate seminars; exhibition debating gbefore colleee, high school, 
and civic groups; and intercollegiate debating with other colleges. 
In addition to debating itself the team often competes in other events 
such as persuasive and impromptu speaking. 

During a school year the Debate Team usually attends three tour- 
naments: The University of Florida Invitational, the Florida State 
University Invitational, and the Annual State Tournament for Junior 
Colleges. Within the past few years PBJC teams have won honors 
in several state tournaments. 

The Debate Team has just returned from the Florida State Uni- 
versity Invitational and is how preparing for the State Tournament 
which is to be held at St. John's River Junior College. 

Their battles over, their verbal guns silence* 
veteran debaters pause on capitol steps befor 
a cannon, symbol of wars not won by words.

After Production Revelations 
Of "J. B.'s" Well-kept Secrets 

Guest Columnist 

Now that the college production 
of Archibald MacLeish's "J.B." is 
over, it's safe to reveal some of 
the well-kept secrets that cropped 
up during the six-week rehearsal 

Steve Jones, who assayed the 
part of Mr. Nickles, not only 
gave a realistic performance but 
for the first time in his drama 
career here, his hair color wasn't 

In a cast meeting after a dress 
rehearsal a few nights before the 
play,' the director and cast dis- 
cussed the problem, which Di- 
rector Frank Leahy said was one 
which he had "been thinking 
about for weeks." 

The part had previously been 
played by actors with black hair 
— which is what the audience 
would assume the devil would 

Steve was so overjoyed when 
told he wouldn't have to apply 
dye to his normally blond hair 
that he practically did cart- 
wheels up the aisle. 

Foot, last British Governor of 
Cyprus, previously Governor of 
Jamacia and Chief Secretary of 
Nigeria is to deliver the lecture. 

Attendance at these lectures is 
sponsored by the SGA and inter- 
ested students should contact 
Tom Wells or Mrs. Dorothy Peed 
for further details. 

Miss Rose Biancarosa was the 
guest speaker at the last eve- 
ning's College Women's Club 
meeting. She lectured on her trip 
of last summer to Hawaii. 

Robert Lee, chairman of the 
Intercollegiate Sports Committee, 
which was formed by the Execu- 
tive Council last semester, re- 
ported that the committee is 
making steady progress. A report 
and recommendation from the 
committee will be presented to 
the Executive Council in March. 

J.B. was presented for a special 
Lake Worth Playhouse-Burt Rey- 
nolds Scholarship performance on 
Sunday, March 3. As of press 
time, at least two nights of the 
performance were sold out.

Carol Loucks and Chuck Kulp 
did a splendid job in taking over 
lighting for performance nights. 
Robert Foster, the regular light 
man, had already promised him- 
self to the Boca Raton Bible 
Grounds for the nights of the 
play, and Carol and Chuck were 
pressed into full-time service. 

Lighting was such an integral 
part of the play that the two 
worked long, hard hours to per- 
fect the intricate lighting cues, 
fades and effects. Leahy admitted 
he was quite pleased with the 
job they have done. 

Gerry Prcibe, who swears aft- 
er every play that he'll never 
run sound effects again, ran it 
for "J.B." and has sworn he'd 
never do it again. How about that, 

There was an audience of ap- 
proximately 250 for the special 
High School performance last 
Wednesday night. They were 
especially good for this type of 
audience, which is usually very

There were only two circus

Radio at 11:30 a.m. a representa- 
tive of each social club on 
campus with Tom Wells, as host, 
will discuss pros and cons of 
having two spectacular dances 
instead of the usual seven 

It seems that each year stu- 
dents become less and less inter- 
ested in the seven formal dances. 
The representatives will discuss 
an idea that if the money pro- 
cured for these seven dances was 
to be spent on two spectacular 
follies and big name entertain- 
ers brought in for these events 
that maybe students would be 
prompted to attend the dance.

Today let us examine that much maligned, widely misunder- 
stood, grossly overworked, wholly dedicated campus figure - 
the dean. 

The dean (from the Latin Deancre— to expel) is not, as many 
think, primarily a disciplinary officer. He is a counselor and 
guide, a haven and refuge for the troubled student. The dean 
(from the Greek^Deanos— to skewer) is characterized chiefly by 
sympathy, wisdom, patience, forbearance, and a fondness for 
homely pleasures like community singing, farina, spelldowns, 
and Marlboro Cigarettes. The dean (from the German Deange- 
macht— to poop a party) is fond of Marlboros for the same 
reason that all men of good will are fond of Marlboros— because 
Marlboro is an honest cigarette. Those good Marlboro tobaccos 
are honestly good, honestly aged to the peak of perfection, hon- 
estly blended for the best of all possible flavors. Marlboro 
honestly comes in two different containers— a soft pack which 
is honestly soft and a Flip-Top box which honestly flips. You 
too will flip when next you try an honest Marlboro, which, one 
honestly hopes, will be soon. 

i&e k void dry eye in fflS 


But I digress. We were learning how a dean helps poor, 
troubled undergraduates. To illustrate, let us take a typical 

case from the files of Dean S of the University of Y 

(Oil, why be so mysterious? The dean's name is Sigafoos and 
the University is Yutah.) 

Wise, kindly Dean Sigafoos was visited one day by a fresh- 
man named Walter Aguincourt who came to ask permission to 
marry one Emma Blenheim, his dormitory laundress. To the 
dean the marriage seemed ill-advised, for Walter was only 18 
years did and Emma was 91. Walter agreed with the dean, but 
said he felt obligated to go through with it because Emma had 
invested her life savings in a transparent rainhood to protect 
her from the mist at Niagara Falls, where they planned to spend 
their honeymoon. If Walter called off the wedding, what use 
would the poor woman possibly have for a rainhood in Yutah? 
The wise, kindly dean pondered briefly and came up with a 
brilliant answer: let Walter punch holes in the back of Emma's 
steam iron. With steam billowing back at the old lady, she 
would find a rainhood very useful— possibly even essential. 
Whimpering with gratitude, Walter kissed the dean's Phi 
Beta Kappa key and hastened away to follow his advjee— and 
the results, I am pleased to report, were madly successful ! 

Today Emma is a happy woman— singing lustily, wearing 
her rainhood, eating soft-center chocolates, and ironing clothes 
—twice as happy, to be candid, than if she had married Walter 
. . . And what of Walter? He is happy too. Freed from his un- 
wanted liaison with Emma, he married a girl much nearer his 
own age— Agnes Yucca, 72. Walter is now the proud father— 
stepfather, to be perfectly accurate— of three fine, healthy 
boys from Agnes's first marriage— Everett, 38; Wilhelm, 43: 
and Irving, 55— and when Walter, puts the boys on a lead and 
takes them for a stroll in the park on Sunday afternoon, you 
may be sure there is not a dry eye in Yutah. 

And Dean Sigafoos? He too is happy— happy to spend long, 
tiring hours in his little office, giving counsel without stint and 
without complaint, doing his bit to set the j r oung, uncertain 
feet of his charges on the path to a brighter tomorrow.

Co-Ed Bowling 
Leaders Named 

Alpha Omega missed a clean 
sweep by 15 pins but their effort 
was good enough to give them 
sole possession of first place in 
the Green League of the Co-Ed 
bowling series last Wednesday at 
Major League Lanes. 

They defeated the Scalers 2 
games to 1. Chi Sig moved into 
second place by bowling over the 
Holy Rollers 2-1. 

In the Gold League the Misfits 
are on top by virtue of their won- 
loss record, although the Gutter 
Busters are leading in the total 
pins race. In the Gold League 
action the Beachcombers suc- 
cumbed to the BSU (2-1) and the 
Explorers with the aid of their 
handicap, defeated the Gutter 
Busters, also 2-1. 

Most of the first day individual 
records held up under fire, but 
Gail Kuhman of the Misfits took 
over the lead in the high series 
with a 439 and also is the wom- 
en's average leader with a 144 
per game. 

Jeanne Kalil of the Unknowns 
and Dave Habershaw of Alpha 
Omega were the most improved 
bowlers. Jeanne upped her aver- 
age by 22 pins, while Dave added 
14 pins to his average.

Dorsey Band Plays 
For School Concert 

Sixteen pieces of the Tommy 
Dorsey Band, under the direc- 
tion of Sam Donahue, original 
Dorsey arranger, performed at a 
three, and a half hour concert in 
the school gym, Monday, Febru- 
ary 25. 

The band's appearance was 
made possible by a contribution 
from Junior Palmer, a regis- 
tered public accountant of Lake 
Worth. Mr. Palmer contributed 
half the cost of the band's ap- 

Future shows of this type are 
said to be possible if other area 
junior colleges would book the 
show also and if the Student Gov- 
ernment allots funds to match the 
Dean of Instruction's Lycieum 
council funds. 

The director is a resident of 
Lake Worth, having lived here 
for 18 years and considers this 
area his home. 

"He and the band were much 
impressed with the reception they 
received from the students at 
Palm Beach Junior College and 
indicated not only a willingness 
but a real desire for a return en- 
gagement the next time they are 
booked for a performance any- 
where in the area of Palm 
Beach," said Dean Paul Allison 
in commenting on the program.

The newly appointed officers 
meet with the Executive Council 
for the first time on Thursday, 
March 7 and will assume their 
new roles within the next week. 

The candidates were first intro- 
duced to the students at an open 
Executive Council meeting, Mon- 
day, March 4. 

At this meeting the candidates 
presented themselves to the 
Council and spoke concerning 
their qualifications and desires 
for office. 

M Open iettet 


It was just three weeks ago that we first came before the 
students in an open letter, now we come not only to the stu- 
dents but to the newly appointed SGA officers in particular. 
You have a rather thankless job ahead of you. For your 
efforts you will receive few tangible results. You walked into, 
this with your eyes open; no one was naive enough to think 
that what has been said and done in the past weeks will be 
forgotten just because a "new administration has taken over". 
As a public service we would like to warn you of a 
few pitfalls: Check on the possibility of needing a 2.0 
average at the quarter; look into which of two constitutions 
is the right one; follow the constitution to the letter in 
carrying out spring elections; and remember that legally, 
no legislation can be enacted in closed session. 
This is your show now, YOURS ALONE. The students had 
no voice in your selection. YOU MUST SUCCEED IN DOUBLE 
PORTION BECAUSE OF THIS. The mistakes you make will 
be widely known and the students will be quick to say: "see 
what so and so is doing, it's just what I expected of an ap- 
pointed official". 

It is up to you to see that you execute your duties with 
the greatest degree of diligence. 

A few suggestions might be in order at this time: Open 
your meetings to the press and to anyone else who desires to 
attend, closed meetings are indicative of having something 
to conceal; discuss things openly with people other than those 
in the Council; call student congress into session more often 
to let the students know what is happening and to let them 
have a voice in decisions. 

Don't take all possible authority into your own hands. 
If you share the responsibility you also share any of the 
criticism which may be levied. This is a prime rule for 
the successful politician to follow. 
We would like to wish you success in your "temporary" 
term of office. Also we would like to tell you that the fourth 
branch of government is said to be the press ... It is neces- 
sary to have an informed student body in order to have an 
interested one. 

The shortest speech of the day 
was that given by new SGA presi- 
dent John Holmes who spoke for 
a reported minute and a half. 
Holmes commented primarily on 
his desire to serve his school in 
any capacity available. 

The longest speech of the day, 
according to records, was that 
given by Holmes' opponent, Bob 

He spoke on a platform which 
included planks dealing with a 
possible percentage basis for ac- 
tivity fund allotment; the estab- 
lishment of a publicity commit- 
tee; the formation of an agenda 
so that the students would know 
what would be happening in SGA 
meetings; and the establishment 
of qualifications and constitution- 
al committees. 

After the presentation of the 
speeches each group of political 
hopefuls submitted to questioning 
by the Executive Council and by 
interested students. 

Queries primarily dealt with 
whether or not the candidate 
worked outside of school, if he 
had his own transportation, how 
many hours each was carrying, 
and with his grade average for 
the last semester. 

Remarks concerning the 
BEACHCOMBER and its part in 
the current SGA affairs were 
made primarily by Council mem- 
ber Lanny Van Camp. 

After one of these exchanges, 
Miss Leverenz remarked to the 
newspaper editor, Peggy Blanch- 
ard, in regard to the job the pa- 
per had done in arousing interest 
in Student Government on cam- 

For this function Miss Leverenz 
extended her thanks. 

"Amor Ti Vieta" from "Fedora" 
by Giordano. 

Other music on the show will 
include a trio made up of Barbara 
Frostick, Shonnee Swyers, and 
Mary Alice Mahoney. They will 
sing Duke Ellington's "Mood In-

sional background as possible.

Blank and Thomas 
Speak Tonight 
To Political Union 

State Senator Ralph Blank Jr. 
and House Representative Jerry 
Thomas will address members of 
the Political Union and their 
guests at a dinner meeting to- 
night at 7 in the cafeteria. 

The solons are expected to 
speak about their duties in the 
legislature, and will probably be 
asked to comment on the recent 
reapportionment of the state 
house and senate, according to 
Jim Hyatt, president. 

Faculty advisor Joseph O. 
Payne said that both these men 
are enthusiastic supporters of 
this college. 

Thomas was re-elected to the 
House in last November's general 
election along with Emmett Rob- 
erts of Belle Glade. 

NOTICE: Sophomore Class meeting Monday at 10 o'clock. 
Check the Daily Bulletin for further details. 

Cigarette Machines Are Taken Out 

In compliance with a recent di- 
rective from the Florida Attorney 
General's office, cigarette vend- 
ing machines have been removed 
from areas generally accessible 
to PBJC students, including the 

Sections 562.11 and 859.06 of the 
Florida Statutes forbid the sale 
of beer and cigarettes through 
unattended coin-operated vending 

machines to minors. 

Actually Florida law prohibits 
the sale of either of these prod- 
ucts to minors whether by vend- 
ing machine or over-the-counter. 

PBJC administrative officials 
stated that they regretted the cur- 
tailment of services to students, 
but that they would comply with 
all state regulations and policies. 

The spring semester Thi Del 
Blood Drive is being held today 
in the first aid clinic, located in 
the Student Personnel Office, un- 
til 4:00 p.m. 

This is a semi-annual project 
of the women's social club. 

Blood collected by this drive is 
available to any student or fac- 
ulty member and their immediate 
family members. In order to ob- 
tain this blood, the student must 
notify Dean Paul J. Glynn either 
at the college or at his home. 

Dean Glynn must be informed 
of the patient's name, the hospi- 
tal in which he is staying and the 
attending doctor's name. Giving 
this information the student may 
then obtain all the blood he needs 
because of the donations of the 

"In the past eight years over 
480 pints of blood have been is- 
sued," said Dean Glynn in com- 
menting of the use of the blood. 

In charge of the blood drive 
will be medical technicians Miss 
Lee Evenson, Miss Lois Duval 
and Mrs. Emma McColley. 

Mrs. Marion Burgess is to act 
as receptionist. Co-ordination of 
the college's efforts with those of 
the Palm Beach County Blood 
Bank will be Josephine Haynie. 

Each donor will be given an "I 
Gave" pin to wear; those who 
attempted to give but were un- 
able to do so, will be given an 
"I Tried" pin. 


On which of the following do 
Americans spend the most money, 
in your opinion — baby food, bak- 
ing mixes, dog food, packaged 
desserts, tea or tooth paste? 

The answer is dog food. There 
are some twenty-four million 
dogs in the United States, barking 
for handouts in about eighteen 
million families.

"Winter of Discontent" 

"Now is the winter of our discontent" (Shakespeare) . 

There may be some question as to why this quotation 

from the bard of Avon is used to begin an editorial, but it 

seems to be very applicable to the problems of the Executive 


Long existing in undiscovered error, these past weeks the 
Council has been on the firing line and has felt the pressure. 
At this point may we state that we are happy that ap- 
pointments were made rather than elections held. 

Before you, the reader, say that the paper has made a 
complete about turn, let us explain why it is so felt. 

Even in the process of making appointments several errors 
have been made. 

For one thing the student body, as a whole was not 
notified BY MEANS OF THE BULLETIN of the vacan- 
cies. True that they were notified through the pages of the 
paper, but much as we hate to admit it there arc some stu- 
dents who do not read the paper and who would be qualified 
to run. 

Another point is that the constitution calls for a list of 
candidates to be posted on the bulletin board for a specified 
period of time before elections. This political endeavor was 
termed an election but this rule was not followed. 

Finally, though not prescribed by law, the common 
courtesy of notifying the winning and losing candidate per- 
sonally was not carried out. It appears that many people 
on campus knew who were the officers, as well as the vote 
for them before the aspirants themselves knew the results. 
These are just a few things, we will not go into more 
details even though we could on many items. 

It has been suggested that now is the time for the paper 
to leave Student Government alone. We cannot justifiably 
do so. 

Elections will be soon upon us and we would like 
to work with the SGA in promoting one of the most suc- 
cessful elections this school has ever seen. 

Also through the columns of this paper we hope to bring 
to you in the coming weeks detailed explanations dealing 
with proposed constitutional revisions. 

We hope to tell you of various ways in which you, the 
student, can participate to a greater degree in the process 
of student government. 

We shall put these ideas before the student body arid 
thus shall they come before the Executive Council and per- 
haps they will take them to heart. 

Then perhaps through the combined efforts of the stu- 
dent body, the BEACHCOMBER and the student govern- 
ment, the winter of our discontent can be turned into glorious 
summer in which we shall truly learn how to be better demo- 
cratic citizens while still in college.

Debating Described As 
Planned Disputation 

By Wayne Rollins 

Debate Coach 


A debate is a planned disputa- 
tion — a formal argument, in 
which persons on opposite sides 
of an issue engage in a war of 
words and wits. It is a game of 
intellectual chess, where ideas 
are king and knowledge is queen. 
Debate involves controversy — 
the open conflict of policies and 
beliefs. It makes an art of per- 
suasion and gives to disagree- 
ment a dignity and purpose. It 
is not sophistry, or a form of 
verbal legerdemain, where, in the 
hands of an unprincipled rhetori- 
cian, the true might appeal false 
and the false true. 

As a game, debate is played 
according to rules, which the par- 
ticipants are honor-bound to ob- 
serve. It is not a mere wrangle, 
or a series of outhorized vituper- 
ations. It is an ordered, syste- 
matic clash of ideas — in the grand 
tradition of a Cicero or a Burke. 
A debate is also a content. It 
is like a boxing match, with 
words for gloves and scholars 
for judges. Like the pugilist, the 
debater has his rounds; and like 
the fighter, he takes his rest at 
the bell. To his opponent he gives 
due respect and from him he 
takes whatever punishment he 
justly deserves for the weakness- 
es and imperfections of his case. 
He delivers, in his turn, that ver- 
bal punch in the nose, which his 
timing and training have enabled 

him to prepare. Yet, the raw, 
kinesthetic power required by the 
heavyweight boxer to overcome 
an opponent in the ring is nothing 
compared to the intellectual ex- 
ertion demanded of a debater, 
in carving out a victory from the- 
hard crucible of rationcination. 
The boxer wins by strength, the 
debater by mental dexterity; and 
the difference is between the 
"sow's ear and the silk purse." 

Debate is, furthermore, a 
science, demanding of its votaries 
a knowledge of method and strat- 
egy. Not only must the debater 
be able to effectually present his 
own case, he must be able to re- 
fute the arguments of his op- 
ponents as well. He must put 
those arguments on the witness 
stand and make them face rea- 
son as their prosecutor, 

A game of "checks and slays," 
of loss and recovery, debate is 
the litmus paper test for the ac- 
curacy of one's observations and 
the soundness of one's ideas. It 
is a war of minds, where every 
statement is judged and "weighed 
in the balance," to be found 
either wanting or adequate. It is 
a contest for the crown of in- 
tellectual superiority—the noblest 
and most coveted crown of all. 

Debate prepares a man for 
the open competition of life. It 
is therefore both a tool and plat- 
form of a democratic society—

"J. B." In Review 

Another Quality Performance 
Well Worth Waiting For 

By Donald Deakin 
Feature Editor 

"J.B."— a play well worth 
waiting for. The result was an- 
other quality production reveal- 
ing the true mastery of the Col- 
lege Players. 

SuDerb is the only word to de- 
scribe the Pulitzer Prize winning 
play as it was presented on the 
college stage. The integration of 
characterization, set design, light- 
ing, make-up, sound, and cos- 
tuming gave us (again I use the 
word) a superb interpretation of 
MacLeish's "J.B." 

"J.B." was a very stylized pro- 
duction making use of symbol- 
ism to a great extent. It con- 
veyed happiness, anger, hate, 
grief, and pity to tell the fascin- 
ating story of modern "Job"; 
giving the same dramatic prob- 
ings as the Biblical Book of Job 
into the soul of a man in his 
struggle to know and accept the 
will of God. 

The atmosphere of the play 
kept one tense throughout the 
first act and part of the last act. 
The play was very fast moving, 
deep, and the full meaning was 
not understood until the final act 
in which the entire theme of the 
play is revealed. 

Mr. Zuss cast as God was por- 

an ephebic training ground for 
the champions of free thought 
and speech. By his willingness 
to subject his ideas to the inspec- 
tion and criticism of his oppon- 
ents, the debater gives tacit as- 
sent to the words of the wise 
Voltaire, who said: "Sir, I do 
not agree with a thing you have 
said, but I will defend with my 
life your right to say it." 

Take from man his right to 
think critically and to speak 
freely about the issues that con- 
front him in a changing world, 
and you deprive him of his most 
valuable possession. For there is 
no substitute for sound thinking. 
The war of ideas is always with 
us. Where there are decisions to 
be made, the nescient and the 
timorous wilt fail to make them. 
Only those skilled in critical 
thinking and honest analysis can 
hope to survive in the world of 
tomorrow, which may find man 
ever more at the mercy of forces 
beyond his control— a baffled and 
frightened waif in a universe 
which neither knows nor cares 
of his existence. Only the man 
of conviction can stand in such 
a world — or would want to. 

Yes, debate is a game; but it 
is a game where the stakes are 
high. It is a game for the strong. 

trayed by Watson B. Duncan, III. 
Mr. Nickles cast as Satan was 
played by Steve Jones, last year's 
winner of the "Best Minor Role 
Characterization" award. Playing 
opposite each other, they set the 
stage, creating the mood to keep 
the play moving throughout, giv- 
ing brilliant performances. Satan 
gave the theme line— "If God 
is God, He is not good. If God 
is good, He is not God!" 

Al Seibert, last year's "Best 
Actor" award winner, had the 
title role, the most dramatic role 
in the play. Portraying the suc- 
cessful, God-fearing, modern 
man, pelted with one disaster 
after another as God allows Satan 
to test faith, Al aroused the deep 
sympathy of the audience. His 
was, without a doubt, the most 
difficult role, but he mastered it 

Sai-ah, J.B.'s wife, is played 
by Anne Ellen Quincey who is 
no stranger to College Players 
productions, was devoted to her 
husband, family, and God, but 
lacks the strength of her husband 
in accepting these disasters and 
leaves J.B. In the final scene 
she returns to her husband to 
start anew. Anne Ellen gave a 
very realistic interpretation. 

John Rossello, Bill Perley, and 
Preston McGee portrayed the 
three roustabouts who are sent 
by Satan to J.B. as "messen- 
gers" in various guises bringing 
news of the successive disasters. 
Later in the play they came as 
comforters— each offering his own 
brand of contemporary salvation. 
They were, all three, excellent 
in their various portrayals and 

Teacher Offers 
On Production 


I feel compelled to oiler pub- 
licly my sincerest congratulations 
to Mr. Frank Leahy, the cast and 
■ crews of "J.B." for what I con- 
sider one of the finest productions 
I have ever seen — inside any 
theatre. I also must commend 
the selection of this fine script, 

I am fully aware that the play 
(certainly not the production 
which was flawless) received 
mixed reactions. In fact, a cer- 
tain amount of controversy has 
arisen because of the theme, plol 
or dialogue. I say, "Three 
cheers!" This is precisely wha! 
the author, I am sure, and whal 
the director, I know, wants. 
Those who feel theatre's onlj 
function is to entertain have j 
narrow view, indeed! "J.B." ii 
truly a literary masterpiece — ; 
kind of visual poem— designed no 
only to entertain (and "To hole 
attention" is one definition of en 
tertainment) but also to maki 
people think. 

Yes, some parts were shock 
ing, some were thrilling, sonii 
were depressing, and some exalt 
ing — as shocking, as thrilling, a 
depressing, as exalting as lifi 
itself. And the final message 
that man's innate necessity fo 
love is what endures all, certain 
ly should appeal to everyone am 
make it clear that the ultiinat 
answer in, "J.B." is an affirms 
tive, fundamentally philosophies 
and religious one! 

In short, we who saw Pain 
Beach Junior College's produc 
tion of "J.B." have witnessed 
rare thing; a masterpiece master 
fully done. As a critic, I woufi 
give six stars, the moon and al 
the constellations; as a humai 
being, I give director and cas 
my thanks and love.

contributed greatly to the cor 
tinuity of the play. 

Other players that were ou! 
standing in their contribution 
were: the distant voice by Job 
Fowle; the Girl by Maureen Me 
honey; Daniel played by Bo 

Credit should also be given t 
J.B.'s children and to those wh 
portrayed the five women lei

destroyed the city.

Reader Ta 

Dear Miss Blanchard: 

During the past few weeks I 
have read your newspaper and 
observed the reactions to some of 
the articles. At this time I would 
like to quote your comments and 
compare them with the associ- 
ated facts. 

In your paper of February 20, 
1963, you printed an "Open Let- 
ter" on the front page. You made 
reference to a person whom you 
termed to be the first appointee 
to the office of SGA secretary. 
I have talked to the people as- 
sociated in this incident and the 
following facts were reported to 
me. This first "appointee," as 
you illogically referred to her, 
was not appointed, but was mere- 
ly asked by the then presiding 
SGA president to assist him in 
some secretarial work until a 
secretary could be appointed. 
Her assistance was only used 
during the summer and the first 
few weeks of school. You stated 
that "the Executive Council 
didn't check on the academic eli- 
gibility of this appointee." Miss 
Blanchard, may I ask. you how 
they could do any checking if 
there was no legal appointee? 
You also stated that the "ap- 
pointment" naturally was "a 
social club sister of the original 
secretary (keep it in the fam- 
ily)." May I acquaint you with 
essential facts, which were evi- 
dently unknown to your staff. 
In reference to this "appoint- 
ment" and the "second" appoint- 
ment, which was the only real 
appointment made, there was 
only one social club sister of the 
previous secretary on the coun- 
cil as opposed to five members 
of another women's social club. 
If the Executive Council were so 
biased as you infer, they would 
certainly have not appointed a 
member of another and different 
social club. They did not ap- 
point just to keep it in the family. 
Miss Blanchard, a method of ap- 
pointment of this type could eas- 
ily ruin an organization. The 
members of the Executive Coun- 
cil have more logical justifica- 
tion for their actions than that 
for which you give them credit. 

Another article appeared in 
your paper of February 20, 1963. 
It was an editorial entitled "Be 
an Officer — The Easy Way." 
Much to your misfortune you do 
not realize that if a person would 
eradicate the biased and illjusti- 
fied opinions from their mind, 
they would realize that nothing 
worthwhile, such as being an 
officer, is "EASY." 

In reference to the article, "Pri- 
vate Council Meeting Held" 
which appeared in the last, issue 
of the Beachcomber, I would like 
to know why something worth- 
while was not printed in the above 
mentioned space. As a former 
member of the SGA last year, I 
am familiar with the business 
procedures of this organization. 
It seems to me that for the dur- 
ation of my participation on the 
council that no Beachcomber 
staff member ever came to the 
SGA meetings, and many times 
the Daily Bulletin read "import- 
ant business to be discussed." 
Any legislative body has the au- 
thority to close any meeting, and 
the minutes of such a meeting 
are accessible to whoever wishes 
to read them. Instead of going 
to this so called "private meet- 
ing," which it was not, why 
weren't you and your staff mem- 
bers in your office trying to ob- 
tain some worthwhile facts and 
unprejudiced news? They both 
have been used sparingly in the 
recent issues of the paper. 

In reference to your editorial 
"Election Day" I would like to 
comment on the tenth paragraph. 
It stated (in reference as to why 
nothing has been decided about 
election campaigning) "One an- 
swer forwarded was that the Ex- 

to the Editor

ecutive Council, guided by Miss 
Leverenz (a very capable secre- 
tary) was trying to imitate the 
actions and manner of former 
president, Tom Wells." Miss 
Blanchard and associates, if you 
have so much excess time that 
all you can do is cut down the 
efforts of an earnest worker, 
Louise Leverenz, why didn't you 
apply for an application to run 
for SGA president. You cannot 
say that I am just saying this 
because she is a social club sister 
of mine. She is not. I think that 
you should give credit where it 
is due. You certainly have not 
done this in your writings about 
the executive council and their 

As an explicit example of this, 
I would like to ask why credit 
was not given to the SGA for 
their assistance in getting the 
"Tommy Dorsey Band to per- 
form on campus. I am familiar 
with the fact that Mr. Palmer 
contributed half the funds neces- 
sary for this project, but it was 
not mentioned that the SGA did 
a great deal in making this per- 
formance possible. 

I do not stand alone in my 

opinion of this disgustingly biased 
newspaper; many people both in 
and out of the SGA feel the same 
as I. I have heard many people 
laugh when someone says, "Have 
you read the Beachcomber?" I 
think it is pathetic that such an 
opinion prevails over a college 
campus. Peggy, you are an able 
editor, why must you let such an 
opinion exist? 

You have a saying under the 
newspaper title in each issue. It 
reads, "The Voice of Palm Beach 
Junior College." The only appro- 
priate and decent thing for you 
to do is to either change the sub- 
title or prove it true. Please 
make your choice.

satisfied student

An Indignant Student 
Raps Comber Editorial 

Editor's Note: Just a small com- 
ment on the statement that "NO 
BEACHCOMBER staff member 
ever came to the SGA meetings" 
last year — John Rossello, editor 
last year, attended. Also Frank 
Witty, news editor and SGA 
president, was there and he 
wrote a story on each meeting 
for the paper. 


Upon reading your editorial in 
the BEACOMBER, I became 
highly indignant and thoroughly 
disgusted— at more than one point 
of the article. 

First of all, it seems as if a 
knife has been buried in Miss 
Leverenz's back, while Mr. Wells, 
who is said to have sacrificed his 
grades for his office, has been 
put upon a shining pedestal. I 
don't understand why this has 
been done since the BEACHCOM- 
BER itself has described a pro-

truer perspective of student af- 
fairs an activities commission 
was formed. These are the facts 
—and they are in direct contrast 
to the obvious negativism dis- 
played by the Beachcomber. 

In regard to the student body, 
a ragged subject of many frayed 
editorials— I am of the opinion 
that the students have evidenced 
leadership that is bold, but wise. 
They are a stable body of public 
opinion that will respond as auto- 
matically to deep understnding as 
it will to high courage. 

The millennium is not at hand, 
however. The Beachcomber will 
probably go on for some time yet, 
making automatic push-button re- 
sponses to problems that merit 
thoughtful evaluation, substiut- 
ing stereotype epithets for rea- 
soned argument, and employing 
invective for persuasion.

I have been asked by both 
independents and social club 
members to present my opinion 
concerning the recent Student 
Government Association contro- 
versey. This is it: 

The complimentary remarks 
paid me in the previous issue of 
the Beachcomber were well re- 
ceived; however, they were odd- 
ly enough, neutralized by an acid. 
This acid seems to permeate all 
of the recent editorials concern- 
ing the SGA controversey. This 
acid has manifested itself in such 
forms as would-be slanderous re- 
marks. The remark "keep it in 
the family" was an insult to the 
intelligence sf independent and 
social club members alike and 
displayed some rather "sour 
grapes" on the oart of the writer. 
Such a remark was h-relevent 
inasmuch as the independent and 
social club factions are now en- 
joying a harmoney heretofore un- 
equaled. If the newspaper intends 
to protest it might be wise for 
those responsible to make certain 
that they posess facts and not as- 
sumptions. For example, it was 
stated that "secretary number 
two" was appointed "declared in- 
eligable by the student personel 
office" and dismissed. The indi- 
vidual referred to did not at any 
time receive a formal appoint- 
ment as secretary. Instead she 
assumed the responsibilities and 
duties of secretary (during the

The Beachcomber seems to be

regretful that the circles they 
seem to be going around in are 
so limited in scope and variety. 
It must be frustrating — almost 
like asking a question and reply-

question. Surely the Beach- 
comber has in no way served as 
the voice of anyone but the 
Beachcomber. The student body's 
response to the activities pro-

has been due to the sincere effort 
on the part of the Executive

Editor Answers Letter 

Dear Tom: 

It is not the policy of this paper 
to answer letters to the Editor 
but, in your case we will make 
an exception. 

In the first semester we had 
much in common since we were 
both given positions of trust and 
influence on the campus — yours 
was to lead, mine to inform. 

We (will comment on several 
points of your letter. 

Your remarks clearly indicate 
an attitude oblivious to your first 
semester actions; however, when 
the occasion arose to find a new 
secretary for the SGA, it was 
you— yourself — who specified that 
candidates for this office contact 
you personally, and you clearly 
indicated that this person should 
be female (as per the minutes of 
the Oct. 18, 1962, SGA regular 
session), and we are wondering 
whether or not the entire Execu- 
tive Council mulled the qualifica- 
tions of these candidates. 

Tom, for your information, the 
official listing of club officers re- 
quired at the beginning of the 
year by the Student Personnel 
Office listed "secretary number 
two" as the official secretary. 
If she did not have the appoint- 
ment, why was she listed as 
such on the Dean's records? This 
is not an "assumption", it is a 
fact, in writing, in Dean Cro- 
zier's office. 

"Typical and disheartening", 

we are afraid we don't quite know 
what you mean, we have never 
said one word about the quality 
of her work. 

"What we will not do?" Others 
were questioned as to the mean- 
ing of this sentence ( ? ) and were 
at a loss to decipher it. 

Tom, if Student Government 
was not covered to your satisfac- 
tion during the first semester, it 
is your fault, you were respon- 
sible for insuring proper cover- 
age, because we were unable 
to attend the meetings YOU 

You asked for space in the 
paoer last fall to cover SGA 
happenings, you were granted 
this request. Every article you 
turned in was used, although you 
invariably extended our deadline 
which caused consternation at 
the printers— especially since the 
stories were mainly front page 

Bold is your flag, Tom, wave 
it. Wise? Someone else, may 
have to decide that. 

Well, Tom, you did push our 
button. Are you happy with the 
stereotyped answers you re- 

We did recheck our facts on 
your request and found that they 
stand up better than yours. 

We are ready to bury the hat- 
chet and work for a better Stu- 
dent Government. Are YOU? 

dates to fill a responsible post. 
This is a rather short-sighted at- 
titude because I know of three 
people who are well qualified and 
have had much good EXPERI- 
ENCE but who would not become 
candidates (at this time of the 
year) in this type of election due 
to the great consumption of time 
involved. If a general election 
can cause this (partway through 
the second semester) of what 
good would it be at this time. 
After all, the offices are held 
only until the end of this semes- 
ter and I have confidence in the 
ability of those I VOTED for and 
helped ELECT to choose quali- 
fied and suitable people for the 
short remainder of this school 

I also resent the implication 
(heck, the outright accusation) 
that those who have signed for 
election are not qualified or com- 
petent. If you say this, you must 
not know the candidates very 
well. Perhaps though, you. mean 
only one or two— why not name 
them instead of casting doubt 
on all of them — you seem to be 
able to throw names around 
quite well. 

And finally, why, at this time 
of the school year should there 
be such "Fury" over something 
that is covered in the STUDENT 

I think apologies should be made 
to the Executive Council, the 
present candidates, and to Miss 
Leverenz (who I rather doubt 
has ever tried or even wanted to 
imitate our former President!!) 
for the editorial of March 6, and 
perhaps Martyr Wells should be 
removed from the pedestal the 
BEACHCOMBER has set him 


Ronnie Poorvin 

P.S. I must add I doubt that the 
BEACHCOMBER will publish 
this, but how about presenting 
two sides to the story!! 

Editor's Note: It was not meant 
either to "stab Miss Leverenz 
in the back or to put Tom Wells 
on a pedestal. Also it was not 
stated in any place any details 
concerning the qualifications of 
any candidate or the names of 
any we felt competent or incom- 
petent. Apologies are not needed 
for anything stated in this paper. 

"J.B." A Job 
Acting Good; 
Appeal Lost 


First of all, I would like to 
comment the well executed job of 
acting in "J.B." I say job because 
that's just what it was ... a job. 
It has "been a long time since I've 
seen a play where people left 
after intermission. It seems to 
me that with the selection of 
plays that must be available a 
more appealing play could have 
been presented. 

There is no excuse for using 
the Lord's name in vain on any 
occasion, least of all during the 
Lenten season. As for the other 
vulgarity, I was ashamed for 
my grandmother to see the play. 
All I've heard from the student 
body is how intellectual "J.B." 
was. Yes, it was so intellectual 
that 99 (; i of the student body 
didn't quite understand the whole 
play. In the future, I think more 
consideration should be given to 
the selection of plays to be pre-

Ages ago armies used to march 
over mountains and plains. Today 
they walk from the living room 
to the kitchen. I guess there is 
some philosophical thing about 
this because people today walk 
to eat rather than to walk to 
slaughter. This can be observed 
by watching people migrate to 
and from the lounge at the ring 
of the bell. 

However there is a fad today 
that everybody should walk fifty 
miles so that they can keep phys- 
ically in shape, lose weight, gain 
muscles, etc. This came about 
when some particular VIP did it 
so now it is spread across the 
country. It has affected PBJC. 
A lot of organizations and indi- 
viduals, mostly males, are seri- 
ously thinking about it but, so 
far, to my knowledge, only three 
students have actually achieved 
this accomplishment. 

These are three members of 
Alpha Fidelphia, Ray Edwards, 
Roy Edwards, and Ronnie Vainik. 
They left the north end of Lan- 
tana and reached the north end 
of Miami, a total of fifty-one 
miles. Leaving at 10:00 p.m.

Survey Shows 40 Per Cent 
Of Students Made Their Grades 

About 40 per cent of all Palm 
Beach Junior College students 
make their grades, according to 
a survey conducted by the office 
of the dean of student personnel. 

Dean Paul Glynn reported last 
week that the major cause of 
students failing was poor study 
habits. Secondly, he said, stu- 
dents get too involved in extra 
curricular activities and just 
don't have time for proper study. 

However the dean looks opti- 
mistically and calls the failure "a 
lesson in maturity." The students 
must learn from experience, 
Dean Glynn said. "In failure 
there's success." 

"Making grades" in the survey 
is defined as a student complet-

In preparation for "fielding" its 
first chess team, the campus, 
chess Club is holding a six round

(ACP) — Dismissing a coach is 
not a pleasant thing for a school 
to do, muses THE UD FLYER 
NEWS, University of Dayton, 
Dayton, Ohio, which adds: 

We realize that the University 
officials thought long and hard 
before giving Stan Zajdel his 
walking papers. However, we 
would like to go on record one 
last time as saying that we think 
Zajdel should have been retained 
as football coach at UD. 

This is not to say that we op- 
pose the hiring of Pete Ankeny. 
But it does mean that we think 
football coaches should be hired 
and retained for the same rea- 
sons professors and instructors 
are hired— to teach one or the 
other subject or lesson to their 
charges, not to gain publicity for 
the school. 

We feel confident that football 
players leaving Zajdel's tutelage 
will go out into various profes- 
sions and impress people with 
the quality of man our former 
coach helped mold. This is suf- 
ficient justification for retaining 
a coach. Thus, we think the Uni- 
versity erred. 

ism inherent in most students. 

Of course, we're talking about 
that new sport (or is it?): piano 

What greater thrill can there 
be in annihilating a six-foot up- 
right piano in a 15-minute span. 
Surely this mania can be put to 
good use. 

The object of this sport is to 
take a sledgehammer in one hand 
and release all your tensions and 
suppressions on the piano. Of 
course it helps if the piano is 
pretty bad off to start with. 

Let's not go around smashing 
$1,500 instruments! 

The remnants of the decapi- 
tated piano must be inserted 
through a nine-inch hole — easily. 
No pushing or mauling is per- 
mitted. We must keep this sport 

I wouldn't walk a mile for a 
Camel, but I'd certainly pick up 
the hammer and take a slam at 
the wooden panels of an upright 

We're not suggesting that this 
activity be added to the intra- 
mural program. We're sure the 
Student Government wouldn't 
sanction an I-R Board request 
for pianos— not to smash. 

But why not work this into a 
worthy cause? 

Proposed: That one upright 
piano be sought out from a sec- 
ond-hand store— preferably as a 
donation— and be brought onto 

Then, to aid some worthy cause 
—and we certainly have some 
worthy causes— there would be a 
time set aside to smash this piano 
and have it inserted through this 
nine-inch hole. 

The price: One smash, smack?, 
for a small donation. Any stu- 
dent who would like to take a 
wack at the piano would make 
his donation and then step to the 
firing line. 

This would continue until the 
piano is in a state of complete 
destruction— or until the students 
are stripped of tensions and in- 

We'll entertain any proposals 
on this. So send your ideas to 
this office. 

Surely this sport must be added 
to the many activities on campus 
—for Palm Beach Junior College 
must not be left out of the spot- 

Oh! And any organization that 
would like to take up this unique 
hobby, feel free to do so. We 
won't stand in the way of such 
a worthwhile release.

Of Blood 


Sixty-one pints of blood were 
donated by students and faculty in 
the Spring Semester Thi Del 
Blood Drive held last Wednesday 
on campus. 

The 61 pints are stored in the 
Palm Beach Blood Bank for use 
by Palm Beach Junior College 
students and their families and 
by Palm Beach County teachers 
and their families. 

The drive, which has netted 4SB 
pints of blood to be issued over 
the past eight years, is a semi- 
annual project of the women's 
social club. It was held in the 
first aid clinic in the Student 
Personnel Office. 

Dean Paul Glynn, chairman of 
the drive, explained that the bene- 
f I L of donating blood to such a 
cause is in the donor's own mind 
as he knows that the pint of 
blood goes to a person in des- 
perate need. The Palm Beach 
County Blood Bank just gave 
Dean Glynn a two gallon award 
money clip for his blood dona- 
tions. He said he has been giving 
blood for 35 years. 

The Thi Dels, under direction 
of their president, Fran Brown, 
and sponsor, Mrs. Esther Holt, 
assisted at the clinic. Medical 
techncians in charge were Miss 
Lee Evenson, Miss Lois Duval, 
Mrs. Irma McColley and Mrs. 
Marion Burgess. Mrs. Josephine 
Haynie, MT, is technical super- 
visor of the blood bank. 

Those in need of blood should 
contact Dean Glynn and give him 
the patient's name, the doctor's 
name and the Hospital. He will 
then make arrangements for the 
blood from the blood bank. 

A list of donors to this semes- 
ter's drive was not available at 
press time.

Aired on Campus 

The Del Russo Show, televised 
over WEAT-TV Channel 12, was

The show, which was a salute 
to Lake Worth on their 50th an- 
niversary, was also a salute to 
Palm Beach Junior College on 
its part in contributing to the 
community of Lake Worth. 

Del Russo, star of the show,

Presented in the musical part 
of the program were: Bob Scott, 
Terry Cox, Jeff Vande Mark, and 
Dick Caron — a quartet of folk

New Council Election Held 

State Representative Jerry Thomas talks with Ed Danahey 
and SGA president-elect Bob Lee. 

Blank and Thomas Speak to Union 
On Upcoming Legislative Problems 

The Political Union hosted its 
first dinner meeting of the new 
semester Wednesday, March 13 
with State Senator Ralph Blank, 
Jr. and State Representative 
Jerry Thomas as guest speakers. 

The speakers first gave short 
introduction talks which were 
followed by a question and answer 
period in which the guests were 
open to barbs from the floor. 

The problems of reapportion- 
ment, the necessity of raising 
enough money to finance the 
growth of the. state and the over- 
all obligation of the elected of- 
ficial to his district and state 
were primary areas of thought 
during the evening. 

Questions dealing with the re- 
moval of the cigarette machines 
from the campus were heard. The 
reason given by Representative 
Thomas for their removal was 
that the Attorney General must 
have received a personal request 
from some source for such a 

One of the major problems 
facing the new legislature, stated 
Senator Blank, is that of providing

brought up by Representative 
Thomas. The reason for this 
though was that minors could buy

One vote illegally cast, one 
vote not taken . . . 

These were the components of 
one of the most dramatic sessions 
held by the Student Government 
Executive Council. 

The vote illegally cast was 
that of Louise Leverenz, SGA 
secretary and former acting- 
president. The vote not taken was 
that of Bob Lee, former sopho- 
more class president. 

The result was that the election 
of John Holmes as SGA president 
(as per last BEACHCOMBER 
issue) was declared null and 
void. A new election, within the 
Council, was held and Lee was 
named SGA president by a vote 
of 6-4. 

A motion to accept the newly 
appointed officers— all except the 
one elected as SGA president, 
made by sophomore class vice- 
president Bill Green, started the 
meeting off. 

The reason given for this mo- 
tion was that the election of SGA 
president was being contested.

Not to be misled by the word

critics all over the country- 
Giselle's Revenge, which is to 
be the performance given here, 
was inspired by the ghoulish fe- 
male in the New Yorker cartoons 
by Charles Addams. 

It is an irreverent sequence to 
the famous classical ballet in 
which Giselle is deceived by her 
lover and dies of a broken heart. 
The unfaithful lover, Albrecht, 
looks to the tomb of Giselle for 
consolation. Giselle comes out of 
the tomb as a phantom to visit 
him and fills him with rapture. He 
pursues the imagined woman only 
to grasp a "wraith" who finally 
returns to her tomb.

of the Myra Kinch and Company 
performance, Monday, March 25. 

Sophomore class secretary, 
Alice Neily, then queried Green 
as to who was contesting the 
election and why it was being 

In reply, Green stated that 
Bob Lee's resignation was sub- 
mitted to take effect March 7; 
the Executive Council voted on 
March 5. Lee was never asked 
for a ballot even though he was 
still, legally, a Council member; 
hence Miss Leverenz had no right 
to vote— since there would have 
been no tie. 

The fact was brought up that 
Lee's resignation had been sub- 
mitted but no official Council ac- 
tion had been taken on it. 

The newly elected officials 
were then accepted— all except 

Newly installed sophomore 
class president, Don Deakin, then 
took the floor and called for 
Holmes' election to be declared 
null and void. He also called for 
a new election within the Execu- 
tive Council at that time. 

It was felt, by Deakin, that the 
new members could vote because 
they had had the opportunity of 
hearing the candidates' speeches, 
in the Council's open meeting, 
March 4. 

Mary Lynn Harris, freshman 
class treasurer then asked why 
Lee's resignation had not been 

Miss Leverenz replied, "I 
failed to bring it before the 

A vote was then held to de- 
termine who would be in favor of 
a recall vote. Faculty advisors 
Meachem Tomasello and Joseph 
Payne were to count the votes. A 
secret ballot was called for by 
SGA vice president Rick Carta. 

A five-five vote was the result. 
Miss Leverenz, holding the de- 
ciding ballot, was reluctant to 
cast it. 

After a brief discussion, Lee 
took- the floor for a brief state- 
ment, in which he told of his 
experiences with the Council 
and how he found out, at the 
last minute, that certain mem- 
ber of the Council, past and 
present, were campaigning ac- 
tively against him. 

Deakin again took the floor, 
stating at this time that two 
members of the Executive Coun- 
cil talked him into changing his 
application to that of sophomore 
class president— saying, in effect, 
that they knew John Holmes 
planned to change his application 
to that of SGA president at the 
last minute and they did not want 
two good men running for the 
same office. 

Green then took up the ball and 
stated he was encouraged to re-

Political tfeaJ/tieJ 

Anyone interested in going into the field of politics can find 
ample examples of political actions in the past month's Student 
Government events. 

Political adventure is only for the hearty of mind and soul, 
for the perserverent. This fact has been well proven of late. No 
better training ground for a future political career at this time of 
life could have been found. 

Many who are interested in politics only in a cursory manner 
were understandably befuddled, amazed and astonished at the 
happenings of the past weeks. This is politics. This is what happens 
at all levels of government throughout the country. 

By means of these political mechanisms the Executive 
completed appointing officers. They made their number replete. 

A great deal of energy and courage has been evidenced by some 
of these new officers already. They are working for the betterment of 
the school and not for self-esteem. 

Plans are being laid for constitutional revision so that a watch- 
dog will be laid down to protect future officers from the stumbling 
blocks found this year. 

Perhaps the political actions which occured in the past weeks 
were for the best. Only time will tell if the school will benefit from 
them. If present plans are carried to completion, the school will 
benefit and this year's Executive Council will leave its mark on 
the school as having made it one of the best schools in which the 
students are allowed to have a voice in government. If some of the 
much talked about plans are carried out. 

If something bad were to be said about the politics of the past 
few weeks, it would be related to the event of a wonderful person, 
a political novice, being urged to run for office by "friends" of 
his; having to resign from an office that meant a great deal to him 
to take the position he was awarded; and then losing the appointive 
office due to voting irregularities which were preventable. 

It is indeed regrettable that such, things have to happen. How- 
ever, in the political arena, the regrettable unfortunately often be- 
comes what occurs. 

It was a lesson to us all. We shall be better citizens because of 
our part in these political actions if we remember what has happened 
here in the past weeks. 

What's in a Name? 

What's in a name? 

Thai's what we'd like to know! Would a rose by any other name 
smell so sweet? We don't know, but roses are not the subject of 
this editorial. 

The subject is names — building names! 

It lias been suggested and talked over by several sources that 
our college buildings be named. So that instead of saying that you 
have a class in the AD Building you could say that you have a class 
in the XYZ Building. 

Many campuses do Iiavc names for their buildings and this lends 
atmosphere and charm to their schools. It could do so to ours. 

Perhaps the Student Government or one of the classes would 
be interested in taking on this task. A contest could be run, through 
the BEACHCOMBER, and students could suggest names. 

A committee of students and faculty could ponder these names 
and choose the ones best suited for the task. Perhaps the organiza- 
tion sponsoring this contest could supply some sort of plaque to 
denote the building's name.

class vice presidency instead of 
seeking a higher office. 

Deakin, regaining the floor, 
commented that originally Lee 
and Holmes planned to run to- 
gether on a ticket and that John 
Holmes was talked into changing 
his desired office by certain of- 

The accusation was made that 
Council members voted against 
Lee rather than for Holmes. 

A revote was taken at that 
time and a 6-4 vote resulted. The 
Council declared the previous 
election null and void. 

At this point, Carta attempted 
to postpone the re-election until 
at least that evening. However, 
the motion was never allowed to 
reach the floor. 

A vote between Holmes and 
Lee was taken. The results 5-5. 
Miss Leverenz asked to be re- 
lieved of the presiding officer's 
position. "I'm sick of breaking 
ties!" said Miss Leverenz as 
she made the request. 

Carta then took over the of- 
ficiating position. 

The next vote was taken. The 
results were 6-4, in favor of Lee. 

As of press time, these results 
were classified as final and of- 
ficial by Mr. Payne and Mr. 
Tomasello, faculty advisors. 

Lee was installed as president, 
Friday, March 15 by a vote of 6-2. 

I like wrinkles in people's 
faces. Nearly always they were 
put there by work or by laughter, 
or both, and each necessary to 
genuine neighborliness.

On Campus 


{Author of "I Was a Teen-age Dwarf", "The Many 
Loves of Dobie Gillis", etc.) 


My favorite cousin, Mandolin Glebe, a sweet, unspoiled country 
hoy, has just started college. Today I got a letter from him 
which I will reprint here because I know Mandolin's problems 
are so much like your own. Mandolin writes: 

Dear Mandolin (ho thinks my name is Mandolin too), 
I see by the college paper that you are writing a column for 
Marlboro Cigarettes. I think Marlboros are jim-dandy cig- 
arettes with real nice tobacco and a ginger-peachy filter, and 
I want, to tell you why I don't smoke them. 

It all started the very first day I arrived at college. I was 
walking across the campus, swinging my paper valise and sing- 
ing traditional airs like Blue Tail Fly and Death and Trans- 
figuration, when all of a sudden I ran into this here collegiate- 
looking fellow with a monogram on his breast pocket. He asked 
me was I a freshman. I said yes. He asked me did I want to 
be <i BMOC and the envy of all the in crowd. I said yes. He 
said the only way to make these keen things happen was to join 
a fraternity. Fortunately he happened to have a pledge card 
with him, so he pricked my thumb and I signed. He didn't tell 
me the name of the fraternity or where it is located, but I sup- 
pose I'll find out when I go active. 

&0&/?K/< g f 

€& miedm toj (tee M imutatf 

Meanwhile this fellow comes around every week to collect 
the dues, which are 8100, plus a $10 fine for missing the weekly 
meeting, plus u 85 assessment to buy a headstone for Spot, the 
late, beloved beagle who was the fraternity mascot. 

I have never regretted joining the fraternity, because it is 
my dearest wish to be a. BMOC and the envy of all the ui 
crowd, but you can see that it is not cheap. It wouldn't lie so 
bad if I slept at the frat house, but you must agree that I can't 
sleep at the house if I don't know where the house is. 

I have rented a room which is not only grotesquely expen- 
sive, but it is not at all the kind of room I was looking for. I 
wanted someplace reasonably priced, clean, comfortable, and 
within easy walking distance of classes, the shopping district, 
and Han Francisco and New York. What I found was a bedroom 
in the home of a local costern longer which is dingy, expensive, 
and uncomfortable— and I don't even get to use the lied till 
7 a.m. when my landlord goes out to mong his costers. 

Well anyhow, I got settled and the next tiling I did, naturally, 
was to look for a girl. And I found her. Harriet, her name is, a 
beautiful creature standing just under seven feet high and weigh- 
ing 385 pounds. I first spied her leaning against the statue of 
the Founder, dozing lightly. I talked to her for several hours 
without effect. Only when I mentioned dinner did she stir. Her 
milky little eyes opened, she raised a brawny arm, seized my 
nape, and carried me to a chic. French restaurant called Lt: 
Chpjoint where she consumed, according to my calculations, 
her own weight in Chateaubriand, 

After dinner she lapsed into a torpor from which I could not 
rouse her, no matter how I tried. I banged my glass with a 
fork, I pinched her great pendulous jowls, I rubbed the legs of 
my corduroy pants together. But nothing worked, and finally 
I slang her over my shoulder and carried her to the girls dorm, 
slipping several discs in the process. 

Fortunately, medical care for students is provided free at the 
college infirmary. All I had to pay for were a few extras, like 
X-rays, anaesthesia, forceps, bemostats, scalpels, catgut, linen, 
towels, amortization, and nurses. They would not, however, 
lot me keep the nurses. 

So, dear* cousin, it is lack of funds, not lack of enthusiasm, 
that is keeping me from Marlboro Cigarettes— dear, good 
Marlboros with their fine blend of choice tobaccos and their 
pure white Selectrate filter and their soft pack and their flip 
top box. 

Well, I must close now. My pencil is wore out and I can't 
afford another. Keep 'em flying.

Vol_XI. No. 16 PALM BEACH JUNIOR COLLEGE. Lakh Worth. Florida March 27. 1961 

Dr. Harold C. Manor speaks before a very attentive audience 
last Thursday as he discounted the invalidity of the charges on "sub- 
versive teaching" levied against the school. A question and answer 
session followed the speech. 

Charges of 


Charges of "subversive teach- 
ing" levied against five members 
of the college faculty were dis- 
counted last Thursday by college 
president Dr. Harold C. Manor in 
a specially called assembly, open 
to interested students. 

Speaking before a filled to ca- 
pacity and overflowing auditori- 
um Dr. Manor called the charges 
made by Mrs. Walter B. Jackson 
at the preceeding Tuesday's 
School Board meeting, false and 
said it was unreasonable to make 
such nebulous statements of ac- 

by College 

cusation against an entire group 
of people (the faculty). 

A great concern has been evi- 
denced by the faculty of the 
school over this matter. 

The facets behind the accusa- 
tion were many stated Dr. Manor 
in the meeting. Mrs. Jackson 
had asked for placement on the 
agenda of the School Board meet- 
ing under the pretense of dis- 
cussing essay contests in the 
school system 

Mrs. Jackson and her friend, 
Charlotte Knaus, then proceeded 

Sophomore Class Meeting Votes 
Against Bacculaureate Services 

The fate of several items con-

Hyatt Named 
As Delegate To 
Summer Congress 

James Hyatt, president of the 
Political Union, was recently 
notified that he has been chosen 
as one of the two delegates to 
represent Florida in Washington, 
D.C. this summer. 

Sponsored by the Florida Center 
for Educational Politics, Hyatt 
will participate in a Congression- 
al Internship working under Con- 
gressman Paul Rogers. 

This is classified an honor to 
the college and to Hyatt because 
only two students and one facul- 
ty member are selected to par- 
ticipate in this endeavor each 

Hyatt will also spend one week 
in Tallahassee this spring, under 
the sponsorship of the Political 
Union, to study our state legisla- 
ture at first hand. 

He is a pre-law student on 
campus, interested in govern- 
ment and poltical laws as a 

The traditional baccalaureate 
service was first on the agenda. 
The students expressed their 
opinion by a 49-23 vote, that this 
service no longer fulfills its tra- 
ditional purpose of religious in- 
spiration and should not be con- 
ducted by the college. By a vote 
of 52-20, it was recommended 
that the individual faiths conduct 
services for their members. The 
opinions of the students will go 
before the school board for a 
final decision. 

On a reconsideration of a class 
picnic, it was decided to have 
one, (49-23), but to change the 
date from the Monday after 
Easter to a more suitable date, 
(21-28). The date of Sunday, April 
21, seemed to be the most favor- 
able to those suggesting alternate 

The suggested class breakfast 
was overwhelmingly defeated, 

It was also decided to present 
a class gift (68-4L Suggestions 
were various walkways and 
building name plaques to be pre- 
sented in conjunction with an an- 
ticipated name contest. 

Further investigation of a 
school symbol was favored 41-23. 

The students also favored a 
graduation dance, 52-19. And if 
finances permit, a formal dance 

(Continued on page 2) 


to attack junior college profes- 
sors as "agents of collectivity 
and world government" and for 
mentioning the UN in class. 

In relation to these accusations, 
Dr. Manor related an account of 
the incident in question. A stu- 
dent was enrolled in political 
science last spring and volun- 
tarily followed the instructor, 
Joseph Payne, to his office, to 
continue a discussion initiated in 

Floyd Becherer shares an of- 
fice with Mr. Payne and was 
hence involved in the following 
discussion Dr. Samuel Bottosto, 
chairman of the social science 
department, hearing a reference 
to the fact that fluoridation of 
water was a part of the commu- 
nist conspiracy because it softens 
the brains of the users for the 
communist take-over, by the 
student, entered into the conver- 

The conversation was carried 
on for a period of time and was 
summarily carried to its con- 
clusion. The boy involved, said 
Dr. Manor', apparently reported 
to his parents about the conversa- 
tion and it was interpreted by 
them as attempted indoctrina- 
tion rather than a free discus- 

At the same time, this same 
boy, was assigned a theme to do 
in Mrs. Dorothy Peed's Fresh- 
man English class. He wrote the 
theme but on a completely dif- 
ferent subject than the one as- 
signed and it was completed with 
a great many grammatical, 
punctuational and spelling errors. 

The student then corrected the 
theme, as is the common practice 
for English composition students 
to do, and resubmitted it. It was 
still on the wrong subject. The 
revised copy was returned to the 
student but Mrs. Peed retained 
in her possession, the original 
copy as well as Thermofax 
copy of the original. 

The revised copy was sub- 
mitted to the local paper as a 
Letter to the Editor. 

These facts were given by Dr. 
Manor as background to the in- 
cidents that have occured in the 
past few days.

Deliberately Misinforming Others' 
Brings Disciplinary Probation 
To Bear on Former President

Filibuster Tried, 
Effort Stymied, 
Holmes Installed 

An attempted filibuster by 
Sophomore Class president Don 
Deakin was squelched and John 
Holmes was installed as SGA 
president in another very heated 
and emotional Executive Council 
meeting, Friday, March 22. 

A motion hit the floor at the 
first of the meeting calling for 
the installation of presidential 
appointee John Holmes and that 
in spite of any discussion en- 
countered that the vote be taken 
at this time.

fice of SGA president, and the 
reinstatement of John Holmes to 
the office he formerly held. 

The letter was sent from Dean 
Glynn Friday, March 15, to both 
faculty advisors and the Execu- 
tive Council. It stated that Bob 
Lee's resignation had been made 
orally before Dean Glynn, Miss 
Rachel Crozier, Dean of Women, 
and Joseph Payne, SGA faculty 
advisor, on March 1, hence the 
premise by which Lee came into 
office the preceeding day (March 
14) was illegal. 

It was because Lee did not 
abide by his oral resignation and 
because he deliberately misin- 
formed other on his status that 
he was placed on disciplinary 
probation for an unspecified 
length of time, said Dean Glynn. 

These charges were brought 
against Lee in a called Execu- 
tive Council meeting, originally 
meant to discuss the proposed 
District Conference which the 
campus SGA was to host. This 
meeting was attended by Dean 
Crozier and Dean Glynn.

Mat Can We £aif ? 

What can we say? The magnitude of the events of the past 
week cannot be easily measured or assayed. 

Controversy has raged on the Student Government front and on 
the general college front as charges of "subversion" were made. 

We could go into a long drawn out discouse on these events, 
but we won't. We will say that we believe in the inherent good and 
patriotism of the students and faculty. Given time all things will be 
resolved and we shall benefit from their resolution. 

Lee Ousted 

(Continued from page 1) 

The statements were made by 
Dean Glynn in the first minutes 
of the meeting and inaugurated 
a heated argument, often becom- 
ing bitter, which lasted well into 
the next hour. 

Lee was, according to Dean 
Glynn, advised that his resigna- 
tion should be made effective 
immediately instead of post- 
dating it to March 7. The reason 
for the immediacy of the resig- 
nation was to allow Dean Crozier 
to accept applications for the of- 
fice of sophomore class presi- 
dent which Lee held. 

"In the presence of Dean 
Crozier, Mr. Payne and myself, 
Robert Lee agreed to having his 
resignation effective immediate- 
ly so that Dean Crozier could ac- 
cept applications for his office," 
stated Dean Glynn. 

Lee, in rebuttal, stated that he 
felt only advice was being given 
and that in agreeing, he was not 
binding himself. He contended 
that he intended to change the 
date on his written resignation, 
but since he could not find Louise 
Leverenz, at that time acting 
president, to do so, he, in the 
course of time, forgot about it. 
Rumors of what would happen 
at the meeting were abundant, 
however, the placing of Bob Lee 
upon disciplinary probation ap- 
parently surprised the Council. 
Strong reactions both pro and 
con were heard from Council 
members. Don Deakin, sopho- 
more class president, and Bill 
Green, sophomore class vice 
president, sided with Lee and re- 
marked that he (Lee) felt that he 
had only been advised as to the 
ethic of the situation, not given 
a mandatory decree. 

Dean Glynn came back with 
the statement that Bob Lee was 
informed at that time of what 
was right for him to do and in 
spite of that went right out and 
deliberately did what he knew 
was wrong. 

Tempering Dean Glynn's state- 
ments was his remark dealing 
with his personal like for Lee. 

The charge of faculty interven- 
tion was levied by Green and de- 
nied by Dean Glynn. Sophomore 
class secretary, Alice Neily 
brought up the fact that in this 
case a higher authority (the ad- 
ministration) had intervened as 
was their right to do. 

The dean was then asked if Lee 
could serve in his position, even 
though on disciplinary probation. 
The answer to this query was an 
unqualified no because he would 
then be ineligible to serve. 

Interference with the rights 
and priviledges of the student 
was then charged by Green. 
Jeanne Kalil, sophomore class 
treasurer countered this attack 
by saying that this was a case of 

discipline which the administra- 
tion had the right to enforce and 
that what happens because of this 
enforcement was not their re- 

A precedent was being set by 
this disciplinary probation for fu- 
ture administrative intervention, 
was another charge levied by 

This brought no comment from 
the Dean who left the meeting 
shortly thereafter. 

The meeting continued becom- 
ing more invective as time 
passed. The reading of the min- 
utes of the preceding meeting 
brought the charge of bias from 
Miss Kalil and a quick state- 
ment of resentment from fresh- 
man class secretary Joanne 
Lowery who had taken them. 

Miss Leverenz, commented aft- 
er several rounds of heated dis- 
cussion thai Dean Glynn had 
given the position of being ahle to 
discipline students and that the 
Council had no right to go 
against him. 

Rick Carta, SGA vice presi- 
dent, suggested that Bob Lee go 
to see Dr. Harold C. Manor (col- 
lege president) on this subject to 
find out if any chance existed of 
being taken off a disciplinary 

Green then queried the Council 
asking if anyone felt that they 
had been misled on this subject 
(of Lee's resignation). Quickly 
answering yes were Miss Kalil 
and Miss Neily. Their quick re- 
plies drew an equally fast salvo 
in response from Lee who sim- 
ply remarked "naturally". 

Freshman class president Jim 
Prevost then took the floor and 
said that all of this discussion 
had nothing to do with, the prob- 
lem at hand and that the SGA 
existed for the students and 
"when the administration said go, 
we go." 

Further comments were shot 
back and forth between a decid- 
edly pro-Lee group and an equal- 
ly decidedly anti-Lee group. Only 
a few Council members were left 

References were again made to 
the rapidity of the Lee's election 
the previous week without giving 
the members "time to think". 

More argument was stiffled as 
Mary Lynn Harris, freshman 
class treasurer, called the Coun- 
cil's attention to the reason for 
the meeting. 

Lee was then asked to investi- 
gate the matter further and re- 
port back. 

Another Council meeting was 
held March 21 at 2:30 p.m. After 
a great deal of debate and argu- 
ment nothing was decided in re- 
gards as to who was SGA presi-

Praise Given For 
Editorial Stand 


Congratulations to you and the 
BEACHCOMBER for the past 
few issues. They have expressed 
an editorial stand which is both 
"bold and wise." They have 
spoken words that have needed to 
be said. 

The student government of 
PBJC is in a terrible condition. 
I sincerely hope that the next 
president (and I mean an 
ELECTED chief executive) will 
propose some constitutional 
changes which will make it pos- 
sible for the students to have 
more to say in their governing. 
A student senate with a mini- 
mum of twenty members is very 
sorely needed. We MUST have 
adequate representation. 

And, in regard to the recent 
farce in which our Executive 
Council has been engaged, I 
must say that many students are 
doing well to know who IS pre- 
sident at the present time. 

An appointed president, Execu- 
tive Council? 

I happen to be among those 
who agree with Lincoln when he 
said, "No man is good enough to 
govern another man without that 
man's consent." 

Give PBJC a good steady gov- 
ernment with good representation 
and we will do all right! 

'Pat on Back' Given 


Since you have received little 
but scorn in your recent cam- 
paign in the BEACHCOMBER 
concerning the Student Govern- 
ment Association controversy, I 
think you should be given a good 
pat on the back. Although I 
don't agree with all issues set 
forth in the BEACHCOMBER, the 
more important issue comes to 
mind and that is the 'COMBER 
is taking action — a stand — and 
backing it up with a mighty pen. 
You are a courageous editor. 
You are even more courageous 
when you publish letters deroga- 
tory to yourself and your work, 
whether valid or invalid. You have 
stirred up an interest in the SGA 
among the student body as never 
before. Hurrah! 
Keep up the good work, Peggy. 




Rebuttal on M.B.' 


I am writing this in reference 
to the letter which appeared in 
the March 13th issue of the 
BEACHCOMBER concerning 
"J.B.". If the author of the let- 
ter was so convinced of his abili- 
ty to tear apart a Pulitzer prize- 
winning play — why was it neces- 
sary for him to withhold his 
name? (Could it be that if his 
identity were know, his judgment 
would not hold much water?) It 
is an insult to the intelligence of 
the student body to assume that 
simply because HE was too ig- 
norant to understand it, the other 
99% did not. 

There is no need to argue an 
obvious point: most GREAT 
plays were not written to soothe 
the ears of idiots and/or grand- 


"Letter to SGA" 


You know, it's a good thing 
the United States isn't in the 
care of our Student Government. 
The "President," so to speak, 
wouldn't know whether to give a 
speech of victory or one of fare- 
well; as far as that goes, he 
probably wouldn't even be sure 
he was nominated! 

I realize that many of you are 
rather tired of this constant is- 
sue — I am too, but I care about 
the future of Palm Beach Junior 
College and the students behind 

Folks in the country wouldn't 
argue the point to any great 
length but one of our rural phil 
osophers took the straw out of hi; 
mouth, scored a bullseye on th<

country where folks in the citj

it. I care about it enough to as 
a few questions which I hop 
will be answered. 

1. When someone resigns frot 
a nost in office only to run fc 
another "higher" position, is th; 
individual rather confident he wi

New band blazers are said to add to sweet sound of the music 
and the enjoyment of playing it. 

Concert Band Sports Blazers 
Shown First at Kappa Assembly 

Something new has been added 
— 43 things in all. The Palm 
Beach Junior College Concert 
Band sported its new blazers at 
the recent Phi Theta Kappa tap- 
ping assembly. 

The colors are Peking blue with 
gold lettering which reads: PBJC

anced by the Student Government 
and funds raised by candy sales 
by the band members last year. 

At the Kappa assembly the 
band opened with the "Star 
Spangled Banner". In the concert 
they played the "March Caril- 
lon," "Exodus", "Malaguena" 
with Cathy Godwin as soloist on 
the clarinet and Richard Vrabcak 
as soloist on the Baritone, and 
the band's final number was 
"Apache". The concert was pro- 
fessional sounding and enjoyed 
by all who attended. They closed 
the assembly with the "Alma 

Mr. Harvey stated, "The band 
is more than a service group. 
Our's is a training period. Our 
first purpose is to read and broad- 
en our musical knowledge of band 
music, from the Boroque to the 
modern. We believe in reading 
experience of all periods in his- 
tory. Performance is a part but 
not the exclusive part of it. We 
teach music and serve the needs 
ot the college." 

The band has almost a full 
schedule for the remainder of 
the year. 

Saturday, April 13— a perform- 
ance at the Bible Conference 
Auditorium in Boca Raton. They

Palm Beach High School won 
the sweepstakes award for the 
seventh annual Palm Beach 
County High School Speech Tour- 

Belle Glade High School took 
second place in the tournament 
which is sponsored by Phi Rho 
Pi and the Communications De- 

Nearly 160 students participated 
in this year's contests, the larg- 
est turnout since the event was 
initiated with 60 students. Any 
student from a Palm Beach Coun- 
ty high school, public or private, 
is eligible to enter. 

After brief welcomes from Dr. 
Harold C. Manor, college presi- 
dent, Watson B. Duncan III, 
chairman of the Communications 
Department, and AI Seibert, 
president of Phi Rho Pi, the en- 
trants began the preliminary 
rounds. Faculty members of 
the Communications Department 
judged the preliminaries while 
members of Phi Rho Pi acted as 

The tournament was divided 
into five categories, Dramatic 
Interpretation, Humorous Inter- 
pretation, Extemporaneous Speak- 
ing, Poetry Reading, and Debate. 
A few finalists were chosen from 
each group to compete against 
each other in the finals which 
were held in the college audi- 

First place in Dramatic In- 
terpretation was awarded to Stan 
Robertson, of Palm Beach High 
School. Second place went to 
Georgia Beebee of Forest Hill 
and third to Barbara Wolf from 
Belle Glade. Honorable Mention 
was given to George Norton of 
Cardinal Newman and Jane Crow 
from Palm Beach High. 

Toni Lunsford, of Riviera 
Beach, copped first place in the 
Humorous Interpretation while 
second place went to Susan Wea- 
ver from Belle Glade and third 
to Kathleen Allen of Seacrest. 

In Extemporaneous Speaking, 
first place was awarded to Anne 
Beuttenmuller, Rosarian Acad- 
emy, and second to Bob Willis of 
Forest Hill. There was a tie for 
third place with duplicate awards 
going to Howard Freeman, For- 
est Hill, and Jane Crow, Palm 
Beach. Honorable mention was 
given to Dave Bowman of Rivi- 
era Beach and Richard Henry of 
Palm Beach. 

Results of the Poetry reading 
contest were as follows: First 
place, Wayne Wood of Belle 
Glade. Second place, Paul 
Mausy from Palm Beach and 
third place went to Georgia Bee- 
bee of Forest Hill. Martha Wel- 
don from Palm Beach Private 
and Rebecca HU1 of Belle Glade 
won honorable mention. 

In debating, the top team and 
best negative was David Bow- 
man and Bob Johnston from Ri- 
viera Beach. The best affirmative 
team was Saul Wax and Bill 
Kerns also of Riviera Beach. 
The best individual debator was 
David Bowman. Paul Mausy of 
Palm Beach placed second and 
Bob Johnston third. 

Judges for the finals were Mrs. 
James Riley of the Royal Poin- 
ciana Playhouse, Stuart Warring- 
ton of Delray Beach, and Paul 
Allison, Dean of Instruction at 
Palm Beach Junior College. 

Coordinators for the entire 
tournament were Watson B. Dun-

structor and Frank Leahy, drama

The misleading headline in the 
March 20 issue of the Palm Beach 
Post-Times ("PBJC Teaching 
Held Subversive") came in for 
comment, as Dr. Manor remarked 
on the disparity between the 
headine and the story which fol- 
lowed. He further remarked that 
appeals were made to both the 
Post-Times and the Miami Her- 
ald for space and it was granted 
the instructors and the school. 

"We are very serious at this 
college about promoting Amer- 
ican Democracy," commented 
the president, citing organizations 
such as the Political Union and 
College Forum as examples of 
this promotion. 

The group of people responsible 
for such an attack was classi- 
fied as an isolated but voluable 
minority group. 

The fact that the college stu- 
dents, themselves, have the right 
to resent the implication was 
brought up, but accompanying 
this was the fact that educational 
institutions throughout the coun- 
try face such criticisms peri- 

The names of those charged by 
Mrs. Jackson with subversive 
teaching were not printed in 
either of the local papers; they 
were revealed by Dr. Manor to 
the student body. Charged were: 
Mrs. Peed, Mr. Becherer, Dr. 

Bottosto, Mr. Payne and Watson 
B. Duncan, III, chairman of the 
Communications Department who 
upheld Mrs. Peed in her refusal 
to return the paper to the stu- 

Dr. Kenneth Williams, presi- 
dent of Florida Atlantic Univer- 
sity, also was among those 
named as "subversive". Behind 
this allegation Dr. Manor ex- 
plained, was the fact that Dr. 
Williams had recently made a 
speech before Society for the 
United Nations. 

When asked about what the 
student body could do to support 
the faculty, the president replied, 
write sensible, unemotional let- 
ters to the editors of local papers, 
supporting and explaining our 
position on this matter. 

A letter of support was read 
by Dr. Manor from one campus 
organization. It was from Phi 
Rho Pi president, AI Seibert and 
pledged support in this matter. 

The meeting was adjourned 
with the feeling that an unso- 
licited vote of confidence had 
been given the faculty by the 
student body.

Two Leaders 

Both the league leaders in 
Co-Ed bowling met formidable 
challenges last Wednesday after- 
noon in the guise of second place 
teams. One survived and one 
did not. 

In the Green League, Alpha 
Omega going to March 20's 
game with a 7-2 record, needed 
only to win one of their three 
games with Chi Sig to nail down 
the league crown for the cham- 
pionship. Alpha Omega proceed- 
ed to win the necessary game and 
one more for good measure. 

Thus Alpha Omega concluded 
the regular season being the 
only team in either league to 
never lose a match. 

In the Gold League the Ex- 
plorers held a two-game edge 
over BSU going into last Wednes- 
day's play. But BSU, with some 
clutch bowling, succeeded in 
winning all their games and the 
League Crown. 

Other Green League action 
saw the Unknowns defeat the 
Holy Rollers 2 games to 1. The 
Misfits knocked over the Gutter- 
busters, also 2 game to 1 in the 
Gold League. The Scalers bowled

Jeanne Kalil, sophomore class 
treasurer made this motion and 
it was seconded by class secre- 
tary Alice Neily. 

An attempted point of order, 
which later was found to be out 
of order was called by Deakin. 
He attained the floor and began 
speaking from a 14 page pre- 
pared text. His first page and a 
half dealt with the purpose of the 
speech. Commenting on the di- 
rect faculty intervention in this 
matter, Deakin continued after a 
later interruption. 

Points of order were called 
many times and were ruled on 
' at many times. 

Bill Green, sopohomore class 
vice president, asked if all laws 
and ordinances passed by the 
Council in the past months were 
illegal because of the action 
taken by the administration. 

Another one of the many points 
of order was called by Miss 
Kalil as she charged Deakin 
with an attempt to disrupt the 
order of business. 

Emotions were stretched to the 
breaking point and tempers 
flared on more than one occa- 

Charges of opiniated remarks 
were made against the chair 
(Rick Carta, SGA vice president), 
by freshman class vice president 
and secretary Lanny Van Camp 
and JoAnne Lowery. 

The charge that the Executive 
Council was being unfair to the 
student body in continuing in 
this manner was levied by Miss 
Kalil and by SGA secretary 
Louise Leverenz. 

Miss Leverenz stated she felt 
the Council was making fools of 
themselves and in order to pre- 
serve the respect of the students 
for the Executive Council, they 
should decide upon this matter 

Deakin again rose to give his 
speech. At this time, besides re-

students responsible for the con- 
struction of the projects are to

books on the Civil War and has

Class Constitution 
To Be Discussed 
At Monday Meet 

The discussion and possible 
passing of a class constitution 
will be one of the main orders of 
business to be undertaken at the 
Sophomore Class meeting, Mon- 
day, ADril 8 during the break. 

Written by class president, Don- 
ald Deakin and vice president 
Bill Green, the constitution is to 
define the rights of the class and 
the duties and responsibilties of 
the class— definitions not found 
in the SGA constitution. 

Also on the agenda is the dis- 
cussion of the class picnic, ten- 
tatively scheduled to be held 
Sunday, April 21. Further de- 
tails will be given at the meet- 
ing concerning it. 

Discussion of the class gift to 
the school is to be conducted and 
the estimates received on the 
various proposed gifts will be re- 

Deakin, in commenting on the 
meeting said, it is hoped that a 
great many sophomores attend 
the meeting because those who 
do attend will decide on vital 
issues affecting the entire class.

"T TLE MAN ON CAMPUS id[Ws Notebook 

April 3, 196"} 

TrajKhhalty &peakina . 

Traditionally speaking Palm Beach Junior College has 

Some people may argue that the Wishing Well is 
traditional, and indeed it may become so if the present rate 
of support and dignity attached to it is continued. This we 
will have to wait and see about. 

What else is traditional on campus? Some say that the 
sophomore class gift is traditional. Why. ? Who knows? 

Tradition, it seems belongs to the ivy league colleges, 
to four year institutions of higher learning, to high schools, 
to junior high schools and on down the line — but not to 
junior colleges. 

Why cannot tradition be fostered by a junior college? 
There are always those with the quick answer — ■ "Well in a 
two year institution there is no continuity of student body 
membership, we are always in a constant flux of change — 
hence no interest." This may well be so — in fact it is true — 
but if there could be found enough interested students each 
year in both freshman and sophomore classes, tradition could 
be established and perpetuated. 

Next year there will be well over two thousand day 
students enrolled on this campus; the year after that it will 
increase even more. These students should be given the 
opportunity to have something to remember and perhaps 
treasure from their educational experiences here. 

It is said that students who graduate from here and 
then go on to other schools think of themselves as graduates 
of the four year school rather than of Palm Beach Junior 

There must be something that we can do to aid them 
to increase their loyalty and devotion to this school. Many 
things have been suggested to accomplish this fact. Some of 
these suggestions are feasible some are not. 

One suggestion forwarded is that of naming the build- 
ings on campus in order to give a personal air to them. The 
1963 Sophomore Class has tentatively planned to take over 
this project. 

The initiation of all-school frolics or entertainment 
filled week-ends, similar to those held at the University of 
Florida and Florida State, has been proposed. 

Among other things proposed to increase student in- 
terest and participation and subsequent increase loyalty and 
tradition are: intercollegiate sports; the establishment of 
political parties to govern elections for Student Government; 
and even the building of more apartments - dormitories for 
that "homey" feeling near campus. 

Some of these suggestions, as we said, are practical, 
some are not. We have the opportunity to choose which are 
practical and to start the ball rolling in the remainder of 
this semester for the establishment of tradition on this 

We have this opportunity — will we take it? 

Easter . . . Its Meaning 

The days of Lent are waning and soon it will be Easter Day. 
A day, that means little more than a new outfit, a pretty corsage 
and a trip out to dinner for many people. 

This day is the backbone of the Christian religion and is ob- 
served by practically all Christian churches. On Easter Sunday 
morning churches are packed as they never have been previously 
and as they never will be again — until next Easter. What does 
Easter mean to the average student? 

Actually, it is because of Easter, that we are students. The 
Christian religion is said to begin at the resurrection of Christ at 
Easter. Leading theologians say that because of Easter and the start 
of the Christian faith, we have progressed as far as we have in the 
world, and that all our humanitarian ideals spring from the Easter 

Because of Easter we have institutions such as schools and 
hospitals; because of Easter we have such a wonderful country to 
live in; because of Easter we are able to live as we do. 

Many will be attending Easter sunrise services and as they do 
they will be able to see the sun rise over the lake or ocean sym- 
bolizing the event which Easter commemorates; the event which 
never will be forgotten — the resurrection of Christ and His triumph 
over evil so many years ago. 

Graduation Blues 

Graduation blues! Believe it or not there are some people who 
have graduation blues! It is to these people that this message is 

You have approximately two months of school left before grad- 
uation. It is up to you to make the most of it. In these weeks you 
can have the most adventurous experiences and have the most fun 
in your junior college career. 

However, no one else can have the fun for you, it's up to you to 
put forth the effort. If you do, the graduation blues won't be able to 
catch you so easily and you will look forward to it as a fitting climax 
to a glorious experience.

Hey, what's wrong with every- 
body? I thought you could read. 
Don't you understand plain Eng- 
lish? I told you that I don't want 
you to read this. I hate to hurt 
your feelings, but this isn't inter- 
ing, it AIN'T a bit good. I told 
you that you were wasting your 
time. Why don't you turn some- 
where else and read some 
humor, or do you have the 
nerve to stop reading this? If 
you don't quit now, people will 
say you have been in the sun too 
long. I will admit that it has 
been pretty hot for the past few 

I thought I was dumb but I 
believe there are a few more 
people who are sliding into the 
stage of dumbness. Please, 
please, take my advice. We are 
already halfway through with 
this and you are still reading it. 
Show your friends that you have 
a little nerve left and go on and 
read something else. Boy day, I 
never believed that you would go 
for anything as stupid as this. I 
thought College Students would at 
least know when something wasn't 
any good. 

If you lost something, look in 
the lost and found department, I 
sure don't know where it is. I'm 
almost through. You still have a 
little time to prove that you have 
a little nerve left: I bet you won't 
admit reading this. I didn't know 
College Students could be so 
curious about anything as crazy 
as this. 

Well, I'm through now, if you 
didn't like this, don't come com- 
plaining to me about it. RE- 
MEMBER? I told you that it 
wasn't a bit interesting.

A system of checks and bal- 
ances, long needed in the Stu- 
dent Government Association, is 
in the final planning stage. Rick 
Carta, SGA vice president, has 
established a constitutional revi- 
sion committee, and has devised 
some grandiose ideas on the 
proposed revisions — all of which 
are good and sorely needed. 

Three branches of government, 
similar to our Federal system is 
planned. Supreme power would 
be delegated to a student legisla- 
tive branch in which the student 
would have a definite voice. 

Two houses of this legislature 
are proposed — one would be 
the now degenerate Student Con- 
gress, revitalized and given def- 
inite powers, the other, a yet un- 
named body, composed of elected 
"senators" from the freshman 
and sophomore classes. 

Arbitrary powers would be 
taken from the hands of the Exe- 
cutive Council and they would 
function only in a manner be- 
fitting an executive. They would 
be able to recommend legisla- 
tion but not propose or pass it. 
The SGA president would have 
the veto power. 

If the Student Government had 
previously had these rules, these 
controls, the recent fiasco would 
have been avoided. 

Without commenting on the de- 
tails of the proposed revisions we 
would like to say that they are 
comprehensive and sweeping in 
nature. (The revisions are to be 
printed in the next issue of the 

A judicial branch is also in the 
making. If this branch had 
existed in the immediate past, 
the validity of the election for 
SGA president would have been 
decided by them — their word 
would be virtually law. 

At this time we will throw som 
ideas your way concerning tin 
proposed revisions. These havi 
been kicked around by man; 
sources and are, perhaps, evei 
included in the proposed revi 
sion — we don't know. We wstitf

or submit them to the paper b;

Rocking Chair Purchase 
Vetoed-New Fad Killed 


We can't understand why the 
faculty advisor rejected a requi- 
sition to purchased 10 rocking 
chairs for the BEACHCOMBER 

But wait, perhaps we'd better 

During the recent weeks, when 
50-mile hikes and other such 
"physical fitness" programs 
have infested the country and 
college campuses across the na- 
tion, a new group of Americans 
has risen to represent another 

For the sake of simplicity we 
shall call this other group the 
Sedentary Americans Associa- 
tion; we could also call them 
lazy, but then we'd have nothing 
to write about. 

Just as there is a right and a 
left to everything — just ask the 
Republicans — there is also the 
pro and con groups representing 
both sides of each controversial 
issue. The SAA is such a group. 

As a charter member I feel it 
necessary to bring to the eyes of 
the world, the activities of this 
selective group. 

By-laws of the group forbid 
members from participating in 
any sort of physical education 
course, which might wear down 
this person's resistive powers. 

Secondly, he must not walk 
any distance over 500 yards and 
must not burden himself with any 
physical loads that would require 
the use of muscle power. 

Dancing — especially the twist 
— is out. This is physical exertion 
to the finest degree. Each mem- 
ber must have access to a car 
and must drive wherever pos- 

These are just some of the rules 
that a member of this group 
must follow to be an inactive 
member (note that I said in- 

active. The group's motto is: 

"Inactivity leads to laziness.") 

The group holds no meetings, 

because this sometimes involves 
physical strain. There are no 
dues required for membership be- 
cause a member might have to 
work (ugh!) to obtain the 

The only other requirement is 
a lounge chair, television set and 
lots of free time. 

Already the work of our group 
has spread across the nation like 
wildfire. A brave Yale student 
recently challenged President 
Kennedy to 30 hours of utter im- 
mobility in a rocking chair. 

With this in mind we decided 
to requisition for rocking chairs 
for the members of our group 
working on this fine publication. 
Unfortunately, we found, our 
group's advisor is a member of 
the left wing faction — a physical 
fitness nut. 

Alas, we're stymied. But if any 
of you students — some of you 
who are already members of this 
group and are unaware of this 
fact — are interested in joining, 
don't bother me. I'll be home 
watching "Huckleberry Hound" 
on television.

Don't Feet the Ivy 
Planted by Phi Da Di 
At the Wishing Well 


"Please don't eat the daisies" 
could well be changed to "Please 
don't step on the ivy" or "Please 
don't feet the ivy" in front of 
the Wishing Well. 
• March 21 was the first day of 
Spring and the fancy of the 
young Phi Da Di pledges, how- 
ever, turned to pulling weeds, 
cutting shrubs, watering and 
planting ivy around our Wishing 
Well. These duties were done as 
a part of the pledge tasks of 
Jerry D'Agistino, Arnold Fakes 
and Murray Shatt. 

It is hoped that the ivy and 
moss growing on the Well's walls 
will flourish just as the now 
growing tradition of wishing by 
throwing coins in the well itself 
has grown. 

Andre Maurois once said: "We 
owe to the Middle Ages the two 
worst inventions of humanity — 
romantic love and gunpowder." 
This may be a good analogy to 
our Wishing Well story. It has 
not only created a benevolence 
of the brotherhood for an orphan 
but also has begun a tradition of 
dunking in the Wishing Well all 
the members who pin their girls. 

Art Appreciation 
Classes Make 
Local Field Trips 

Four Art Appreciation 111 
classes recently visited three area 
churches to study traditional 
building styles adapted to local 
achitecture. Included in the trip 
were: St. Edwards in Palm 
Beach, as a baroque development 
of the early Christian basilica, 
Bethesda by the Sea in Palm 
Beach for its Gothic grey stone 
construction and rich stained 
glass, and St. Catherine's Greek 
Orthodox Church in West Palm 
Beach, where the traditional 
Byzantine dome on pendentives 
has been suspended through the 
use of steel. 

At St. Catherines, Father An- 
thony explained the architecture 
in terms of the ritual needs of 
the service. 

Art Appreciation 110 classes

to study the permanent collec- 
tion of modern painting and sculp- 
ture, and the 45th Annual Exhi- 
bition of Members o fthe Palm

turer is exhibited.

Have you ever lain awake at 
night listening to a rat gnaw on 
something? Have you ever eased 
out of bed and beat on the wall 
in hope that you could go to sleep 
before he started gnawing again? 
The rat will stop for about four 
to five minutes and then, just as 
you are about to doze off, he will 
start up again. It is one of the 
most exasperating things in the 
world until you figure it out. Sim- 
ply consider that you are causing 
the rat a lot of inconvenience too 
by beating on the wall, and you'll 
go to sleep plumb satisfied.

Crane Wins Scholarship-Grant; 
Hale Gets Critical Acclaim 

Two of the "lucky" fellows to whose lot it fell the pleasant duties 
of accompanying Miss America on her recent visit to the Palm 
Beaches, Howard Ennis and Rusty Sykes don't look too much the 
worse for wear after a morning and afternoon of duty — But the

Sugar, Spice and Everything 
Nice— That's Miss America 


Sugar and spice and everything 
nice, that's what Miss America 
is made of . . . and Jacquelyn 
Jeanne Mayer, Miss America 
1963, is a perfect example of 
this saying. 

Appearing before a press con- 
ference of student newspaper 
writers and other school repre- 
sentatives, Jackie was as poised 
and sweet as any 20-year-old col- 
lege sophomore beauty queen 
could be. Her disarming honesty 
in answering questions — even to 
her answering why she preferred 
her home state of Ohio over 
Florida as her favorite state — 
added the appeal generated to 
the coed audience. 

Escorted on' her tour of the 
Palm Beaches by junior college 
men (who described her as un- 
believeable — a marvelous per- 
son—lots of fun), Jackie had a 
whirlwind tour of the area, held 
her press conference and her day 
culminated in the crowning of 
Miss Lake Worth in the Miss 
America affiliated contest spon- 
sored by the Lake Worth Civitan 
Club. Miss Lake Worth just hap- 
pened to be Miss Anna Lou 
Micheal, a freshman at the col- 

Russell Sykes had the envi- 
able job of being Miss America's 
aide-de-camp for the entire day. 
Howard Ennis and Bill Green, 
while not having Sykes' job, were 
not immune to Jackie's many 
charms as they acted as chauf- 
fers for the day. 

Describing herself as a typical 
college student, Miss America 
qualified the statement by com- 
menting on her membership in 
a social sorority on the campus 
of Northwestern University. In 
further relation to being typical, 
she said as being a member of 
a sorority she dated fraternity 
men on the campus — and said 
that also made her typical. 

Membership in either a fra- 
ternity or sorority was classified 
as almost essential on a Greek 
campus, such as Northwestern, 
by the always poised beau- 
ty queen. In order to be in on 
social activities,, membership in 
a Greek organizataion was neces- 
sary, she commented. 

Sororities also provide you 
with many life-long friends with 
whom you are with all the time, 

she remarked in dealing with the 
benefits of sorority membership. 
"In my case, a sorority has of- 
fered a great deal," she said in 
closing her answer. 

A perfect husband, as described 
by Jackie, who incidentally said 
she was not going with anyone at 
the time, would have character 
and intelligence. He would also 
believe in himself. Good sports- 
manship, charm, warmth, the 
ability to meet people, and like 
interests would also be taken into 
consideration in finding the ideal 

Just so the interviewers would 
not think romance would not en- 
ter into her choice, Jackie con- 
tinued, "He would have to love 
me more than himself." 

Cheesecake pictures? "Never," 
said the attractive ideal woman. 
Miss America is a scholarship 
fund and it has a dignity not 
found in other contests. 

Becoming philisophical Miss 
America remarked on her im- 
pressions of American, youth. All 
youth across the country are 
basically the same, and are de- 
sirous to get away from parents, 
to be on their own. They are won- 
derful all over the country, she 

After the press conference Miss 
America posed with various 
groups present for pictures. As 
she posed, she did indeed sym- 
bolize the ideal image of the 
American woman — the girl next 
door — your neighbor and friend 
— one whom you respect and ad-

need of the moment. At the

dents and next year we will have 
approximately 2500— the constitu- 
tion as it now stands is not suf- 
ficient to take care of the needs 
of these students. 

Apathy is found on the cam- 
pus, he continued, due, perhaps 
: in part, to the fact that 12 stu- 
dents control the government. 
Also due in part to the fact that 
no actual power to effect the 
students is granted the SGA— 
real power is wielded by organi- 
zations such as the I-R Board and 
the ISCC.

In conclusion he stated, "We 
are planning to give the students 
the opportunity to govern them-

Staff Writer 

Poor Freddie Smugmurfer, he 
was in the librai-y three and 
one-half hours, most of the time 
reading one of the library's books. 
Time came for him to leave and 
as he went through the "door" 
ba didn't or did, actually. 
Smash! Tinkle. 

He was sent to the hospital 
with a broken nose, bruises, and 
contuses. This wasn't bad though 
because he had unintentionally 
forgotten to check out the library 
book and was sent down the 

Meanwhile, as Freddie was be- 
ing scraped off the floor, Merty 
Mubbelscrimer was sneaking out 
the other door, the one that does 
work, with a shelf full of books, 
a set of encyclopedias, a table, 
three chairs, and a bottle of ink 
off the librarian's desk. 

Moral: One door is as good to 
sneak through as the other. 

Why should one door in a set 
of two be locked? This bugs the 
campus not only in the library 
but also in the lounge and the 
auditorium. It is absolutely sick- 
ening at about 10:20 to see the 
people squirm and squeeze out 

the north door of the lounge. It 
would be a much nicer exit if 
both doors would open so that 
people wouldn't have to squash 
each ether and trample their 

The condition is even worse at 
the library at the bell when 
classes change. The tide goes in 
and out at the same time caus- 
ing complexes. 

I also sat in there once for a 
period of about two hours and 
watched at least twenty-three 
poor souls sprain their wrists 
and/or curse because the fake 
door didn't open. A door at the 
auditorium usually doesn't work. 
Of course it does open from the 
inside but not the outside. 

And I ask why? Because of the 
prevention of theft? Rather hu- 
morous. One door is as good as 
the other for "that purpose. Be- 
cause they are out of order? Then 
why are they not fixed? Because 
it is too much trouble to un- 
lock both doors? Well, whatever 
it is, it would make living a little 
more easier on campus if both 
doors were open. 


Those things found in the 
lounge and library, painted in 
such inconspicuous colors, are 
not book racks! 

They are paper stands de- 
signed, decorated (yellow and 
green); paid for by and the 
property of the BEACH- 
COMBER. Because they are 
private property, please re- 
frain from using them as 
book racks. 

If you persist in misusing 
them, any books found on them 
will be considered the prop- 
erty of the paper and sold

Alpha Omega Takes 
Overall Bowling Title 

Sports Editor 

It's tough to beat a team who 
bowls consistently in handicap 
play, and Alpha Omega is a shin- 
ing example of this. 

Bowling good, steady games 
throughout the season, they won 
the Green League crown the pre- 
ceding week and last Wednes- 
day, proceeded to bowl over 
BSU, the Gold League cham- 
pions, for the over-all intramural 

Alpha Omega won the first two 
games, the opener by just six pins 
(721-715) and then, apparently 
let up a bit as BSU copped the 
final game (763-759). The entire 
match was one of the closest of 
the season. 

For individual titles Les Nus- 
bacher and Lisa Wegner, both 
of the Gutterbusters, took the 
honors in the men's and wom- 
en's races. Les won the high aver- 
age with a 196. Lisa also won the 
high average with a 157. 

Ray Long, the third Gutter- 
buster medal winner, took the 
high series medal with a 604. 
Gail Kuhman of the Misfits won 
the girls high series with a 439 
total. Medal winners for high 

game were Art Smith of the 
Misfits with a 209 and Sharon 
Crowley of the Beachcombers 
with a 193. In bowling her high 
game, Sharon put together six 
successive strikes.

The office of president was won 
is a close ballot, with Ron emerg- 
ing triumphant over a candidate 
from a smaller junior college 
who had rallied other small col- 
leges around him. 

Ron was named the new state

succeeds this year's president, 
Mitch Hanness of Dade Junior 

One of Ron's major duties will

The possible formation of 
strong organizations within the

other of Ron's duties. He also 
plans to improve communications 
between Association members.

Artists And Models 
Annual Ball Set 
For Saturday Nite 

This year's Artists and Models 
Ball is going to be the best yet 
"the usual great art with a new 
theme" according to Mrs. Nina 
Jensen, assistant chairman of the 
Fine Arts Department. 

The new twist at the ball this 
year will - be its theme, a spoof 
on commercials, "The Wonderful 
World of Modern Advertising." 

There's even going to be a new 
category to honor the ads in the 

costume judging, by a panel of 
distinguished citizens. 

Entertainment will be supplied. 

Prizes for the winning costumes 
are produced by the Art Club 
and include paintings and cer- 
amics. Decorations are also 
handled by the club and stress 
the advertising theme. 

The price is right, too, it's free 
and any regular student with an 
activity card can bring one guest.

Qfkt tfhJeen . . . 

One must never buy anything sight unseen . . .at least 
that's what we've been told. But with the coming Student 
Government Association elections many people will indeed 
buy things sight unseen. 

What will they be buying? Candidates! Their future 
officers!! Campaign speeches will be given in the Lounge in 
the near future . . . but with the crowded conditions which 
exist at the break there is little doubt that all the voting 
public will get to hear the masterpieces of campaign promises 
set forth by the political aspirants. 

Some students may meet the candidates in handshaking 
tours, others in casual conversations, but still others may 
not meet the hopefuls at all. 

Yet these people will vote! How will they vote? How 
will they choose? By association, by social club member- 
ship, by how many times and in what connection the can- 
didate's name has appeared in the paper. 

These are not valid reasons for casting ballots. 

We would like to, in a way, challenge the candidates 
to appear outside the smoke filled, crowded and noisy Lounge 
to give speeches. We would like to challenge them to submit 
to a question and answer session from the floor. This may 
be the way to see that competent officers are elected. 

The present Executive Council could set up such a meet- 
ing to be held possible next Monday after school. This 
meeting could be open to all and SHOULD be well pub- 
licized in advance. 

We hope that the Council will act upon this suggestion 
and sponsor such a thing. It can be of great aid to the stu- 
dents as they make up their minds and go to the polls a week 
from Friday.

Reasons For Becoming A Candidate 
Are Many And They Vary Little 

Letters To The Editor 

Class Chaos Prevails 


Why should a full time student 
take time out to serve the stu- 
dent body in a governing capac- 
ity? Answers given by candi- 
dates, vary only a little in origin- 

The explications nominees here 
are in two classes — overt and 
invert. Under these two classes 
the candidates motives can be 
judged as favorable, acceptable, 
mediocre cliches, and poor. 

Some of the acceptable overt 
reasons might be — to gain po- 
litical experience, to learn how 
to deal with people, and to get an 
educational bonus. Since many 
candidates are interested in law, 
public relations, and politics for 
future vocations they gain an 
educational bonus which they 
would not ordinarily receive. 
Holding an SGA office does give 
one additional political insight be- 
cause of the duties of the office 
and work that has to be done. 

Often aspirants will use what 
might be called mediocre clinch- 
es as reasons for running for of- 
fice. Almost all candidates list, 
as an overt reason for running, 
that they would like to serve 
their fellow students. Trying to 
be an indifferent or neutral can- 
didate, some will say that they 
were urged to run by neutrals. 
Usually there will be an office 
seeker who, for the lack of a 
more polished answer, will re- 
port that he wants the job, and 
will do the very best he can. 

What might be considered as a 
poor or egotistical reason are 
such choice comments as: "I 
am running because I am need- 
ed," or, "I don't think that any- 
one can rin the iob better or as 

well as I can." 

Why don't aspirants give more 
favorable explanations for seek- 
ing an office? Some would reply 
that many candidates are novices, 
and do not have the political ex- 
perience to give better reasons. 
Secondly, many hopefuls, when 
posed with the question of why 
they are running, have not 
thought out this question before- 
hand, and may give one of the 
mediocre cliches. 

Having less obvious reasons for 
running, is frequently the case 
with candidates, for there are 
often reasons that are common 
knowledge which do not need to 
be said. -These invert motives 
are the ones that usually make 
people skeptical of aspirants. 
They may be poor or acceptable 
depending upon the weight the po- 
tential office holder puts upon 

Personal prestige often plays 
a primary role in invert reasons. 
If personal or record prestige is 
the primary reason why a person 
runs for an office, then this be- 
comes a rather poor motive for 

If a person runs for an office 
with the idea that it will bring 
prestige to his club as a primary 
reason, it, also becomes a poor 

Office holding is a mutual trust 
of service and reward of which 
there is a delicate balance be- 
tween the two. A favorable and 
mutual reason for running might 
be, "I would like to serve you be- 
cause I think that I am qualified 
with experience, and have a 
sound platform that will benefit

When officers of a governing 
body present a ballot to be voted 
upon, the voters presume the of- 
ficers have given due considera- 
tion and investigation to the bal- 
loted items. And when they don't, 
ch^ios prevails. 

This exasperating situation 
now faces the Sophomore Class. 
On March 18 the class met and 
voted on various issues concern- 
ing graduation which were pre- 
sented in a written ballot. At 
the meeting of April 8, Class 
President Don Deakin proceeded 
to tell those sophomores present 
the results of the vote and then 
that they cannot have what they 
voted 'for. 

The issue of whether or not to 
have a Baccalaureate service 
rode quite a controversy at the 
March meeting. The faculty 
sponsors had already gone on 
record as opposing the religious 
services before the ballot was 
even presented to the students. 
With one strike against it, the 
students saw fit to reject the 
service also. But at last Mon- 
day's meeting, our president in- 
formed 'us that we will have Bac- 
calaureate. It seems we haven't 
time to present the rejection to 
the County School Board with 
just reasoning to get it okayed. 
Now, I ask, couldn't this have 
been investigated and proved im- 
possible before it was presented 
to the sophomores for a vote? 
What are our "duly elected" of- 
ficers for? 

Aghast at this, I heard more at 
last week's meeting: 

Mr. Deakin informed us that 
the vote had favored a formal 
dance. (It had been presented on 
the ballot.) But we can't finance 
it. How about a rock and roll 
dance, he asked. Students didn't 
go for the idea. How about a 
semi-formal, he compromised. 
But we must pay to attend, he 

How about a vote? No wait 
a minute. We voted once. We 
approved a formal graduation 
dance. On what grounds could 
he ask for a re-vote? His own 
carelessness presented this 
choice to us. (Besides, not near 
as many students were at last 
week's meeting as there had been 
at the original session. ) Shouldn't 
this issue have been given full 
consideration before we voted? 


Pari tiro* -md mmmtr employment. 
Cell Mr. Calliway, 683-2150 any 
day between 3 - 5 p.m. 

Also the students voted strong- 
ly against having a class break-' 
fast— 52 to 20. But I won't say 
that the issue was placed before 
us in an unbiased fashion. At 
any rate, Mr. Deakin casually 
informed us that it had been de- 
cided to serve coffee and donuts 
at the graduation rehearsal. 

We also voted for a picnic 
which we presumed the class 
treasury could afford. Now he 
wants us to bring our lunches. 

Mr. Deakin, who was appoint- 
ed when our elected president 
resigned to seek a higher SGA 
office, was perhaps a little over 
anxious to conduct his first class 
meeting. He was not justly pre- 
pared for this first session. He 
presented us with a pretty ballot 
but had not investigated the is- 
sues and their possible problems. 
Is this too much to ask from our

Mr. Druon is classified as tl

frontispiece of his new collectii 
of short stories. His first ai 
title story belies the fact, b 
later selections show that 1 
does indeed have a mastery

"The Glass Coffin" is the fi! 
selection and is somewhat dif 
cult to follow and understar 
The characters are not well c 
picted and the action tries to e 
compass too great a tetrito 
without providing even a sm. 

The connection between t 
main characters and the gl<

"Night Patrol" and "The V 
of A Single Day" were just l 
of the redeeming stories in tl 

In the former, you can f 
the suspense and terror of 1 
soldier on watch by himself

him. You can understand h 
he thinks and how he is try: 
to plan his action. The conl 
uity of character and the ac 
tion of the unexpected add to 

The latter is even more enj 
able as a young servant i

Well Attended 
33rd Convention 

April 17, 1963

Staff Writer 

At 9:00 a.m. Wednesday, April 
3, the members of Phi Theta 
Kappa, national honorary scho- 
lastic society, met at the Deau- 
ville Hotel in Miami Beach for 
their 33rd Annual Convention. 

Members of Phi Theta Kappa, 
approximately 415, came from 
all over the United States; each 
chapter had a sponsor and at 
least one delegate as representa- 
tives. Delta Omicron of Palm 
Beach Junior College acted as 
hosts for this year's conventional 

Registration and assigning of 
rooms was carried on from 9:00 
a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Wednesday. 
At 1:00 p.m. the first general ses- 
sion took place in the Cavalier 
Room. Carlos Moore, National 
President, gave the call to order 
followed by the invocation given 
by Richard Miller, President of 
the campus Phi Theta Kappa. 
Dean Paul W. Allison introduced 
the speaker, Gene Garscia, Assis- 
tant Executive Director of the 
Convention Bureau in Miami. The 
national officers were then intro- 
duced followed by roll call given 
by Mrs. Margaret Mosal, Execu- 
tive Secretary-Treasurer. 

Committees were assigned and 
business was discussed. The 
meeting was adjourned with the 
Phi Theta Kappa song. The mem- 
bers had the chance to congre- 
gate and socialize while observ- 
ing the beautiful surroundings of 
the Hotel. Being amid the elab- 
orate environment of the Deau- 
ville Hotel gave the members a 
lasting impression of Miami 
Beach. Fortunately, the weather 
was on our side and our tradi- 
tional phrase, "The Land of Sun- 
shine," held true. 

After the superb cuisine, the 
workshops began in which ideas 
were presented. This enabled 
everyone to have a better view of 
what the other chapters had done 
throughout the United States. At 
ten o'clock that evening, an Ar- 
thur Godfrey Water Show and 
Pooliside Reception was reserved 
for Phi Theta Kappa. 

On Thursday, April 4, at 7:30 
a.m. the sponsors had breakfast 
in the Cafe De La Mer and at 
8:00 a.m. the delegates had their 
breakfast. At 8:30 a.m. the 
sponsors had a meeting in the 

Cavalier Room. The Second Gen- 
eral Session took place at 1:00 
p.m. and at this time the candi- 
dates for National Officers of 
1963-64 gave their speeches. 

At 6:30 p.m. the Banquet was 
held in the beautiful Casanova 
Room. The Master of Ceremon- 
ies was Charles Webster and the 
Welcome Address was given by 
Dr. Harold C. Manor. Dr. Thom- 
as B. Merson, Assistant Director 
for Commissions, American As- 
sociation of Junior Colleges, 
Washington, D.C. gave a speech. 

Awards were presented to the 
most active chapter, the chapter 
that had written the best news 
coverage and to other chapters 
with noteworthy records — Miss 
Easterling was given an honor- 
ary award as well as a corsage 
(and very well deserved) for the 
work she had carried on so well 
in the convention. At 9:00 p.m., 
we piled into the Napoleon Room 
to see Tommy Sands perform. 

After breakfast Friday, the 
Final Business Session took place 
at 9:00 a.m. It was decided to 
have the Convention in Aberdeen, 
Washington, next year and, to 
have the convention take place 
in Chicago, Illinois in 1965. Na- 
tional Officers for 1963-64 were 
elected and installed and the 
meeting was adjourned in time 
to do that last minute packing 
and saying farewell to the new 
found friends. The Convention 
was over but it will not be one 

Miss Easterling commented 
that she was most appreciative 
of our chapter and very proud 
of the way in which the members 
worked diligently. She also 
stated that she was proud of the 
way in which the other chapters 
of Phi Theta Kappa behaved in 
such a mannerly and courteous 
way despite the difficulties in-

(Author of "I Was a Teen-age Dwarf," "The Many 
Loves of Dobie Gillis," etc.) 


Although my son is a college freshman, I am glad to say that 
he is still not too old to climb up on my lap and have a heart- 
to-heart talk when things are troubling him. My boy is enrolled 
at Harvard where he is studying to be a fireman. From the 
time he was a little tiny baby he always said he wanted to be 
a fireman. Of course, my wife and I believed that he would 
eventually grow out of it, but no sir, the little chap never 
wavered in his ambition for one minute ! 

So here he is at Harvard today taking courses in net holding, 
mouth-to-mouth breathing, carbon tetrachloride, and Dalma- 
tian dogs. It is a full schedule for the young man, and that, in 
fact, is exactly what we talked about when last he climbed 
upon my lap. 

He complained that every bit of his time is taken up with his 
major requirements. He doesn't have so much as one hour a 
week to sample any of the fascinating courses outside his major 
—history, literature, language, science, or any of the thousand 
and one tilings that appeal to his keen young mind. 

I am sure that many of you find yourselves in the same 
scholastic bind; you are taking so many requirements that you 
can't find time for some appealing electives. Therefore, in to- 
day's column I will forego levity and give you a brief survey in 
a subject that is probably not included in your curriculum. 

&e MM ioo OU 

I have asked the makers of Marlboro Cigarettes whether I 
might employ this column-— normally a vehicle for innocent 
merriment— to pursue this serious end. "Of course you may, 
crazy kid," they replied kindlily, their grey eyes crinkling at 
the corners, their manly mouths twisted in funny little grins. 
If you are a Marlboro smoker— and what intelligent human 
person is not?— you would expect the makers of Marlboro to 
be fine men. And so they are— wonderful guys, every man-jack 
of them— good, generous, understanding, wise. They are each 
tipped with a pure white filter and come in soft pack or Flip- 
Top box. 

But I digress. We were going to take up a topic you are 
probably unable to cover in your busy academic life. Let us 
start with the most basic topic of all— anthropology, the study 
of man himself. 

Man is usually defined as a tool-making animal, but I per- 
sonally do not find this definition entirely satisfactory. Man is 
not the only species which makes tools. The simians, for ex- 
ample, make monkey wrenches. 

Still, when you come to a really complicated tool— like a 
linotype, for instance— you can be fairly sure it was made by 
Homo sapiens— or else a very intelligent tiger. The question one 
should ask, therefore, is not who made the tool, but what did 
lie do with it. 

For example, in a recent excavation in the Olduvai Gorge a 
large assortment of hominoid fossils was found, all dating back 
to the Middle Pleistocene Age. Buried with the fossils was a 
number of their artifacts, the most interesting being a black 
metal box which emitted a steady beeping sound. Now, of 
course, zoologists will tell you that tree frogs make such boxes 
which they employ in their mating activities (I can't go into 
detail about it in this family newspaper) but the eminent an- 
thropological team, Mr. and Mrs. Walther Sigafoos (both lie 
and she are named Walther) were convinced that this particular 
box was made not by tree frogs but by Neanderthal men. To 
prove their point, they switched on the box and out came 
television, which, as everyone knows, was the forerunner of fire. 

If there is anything more you need to know about anthro- 
pology, just climb up on my lap as soon as my son leaves.

SGA Elections Friday; United Party Formed 



Vol. XI, No. 19 


April 24, 1963 

Unanimous Minus One Vote Clears Faculty 

Board Member Votes No On Motion 
Of Confidence Because Of Breach 


A breach in a promised confi- 
dence kept five accused "sub- 
versive" teachers from getting a 
unanimous vote of confidence 
from the Board of Public Instruc- 
tion as it met in the college audi- 
torium last Wednesday evening. 

Robert Johnson was the sole 
dissenting voter as the School 
Board brought to a close its long 
investigation of unsubstantiated 
charges of "subversion" on the 
junior college campus. 

Closeted by reporters, indig- 
nant students and faculty mem- 
bers and interested parties, 
Mr. Johnson refused to com- 
ment, saying he would make 
his reason for dissenting known 
only to Board, if and when they 
asked for it. Repeated in- 
quiries would not shake his 
adamant stand. 

The supposed breach of public 
faith and confidence was revealed 
when the attorney for four of the 
accused instructors said that 
David Williams had named six 
students who were in Joseph 
Payne's class last year and who 
would attest to and certify his 
charges against Mr. Payne. 
One of the students named by 
' Williams .in his statement, Val 
Gabaldon, was called upon to 

speak. Gabaldon spoke in defense 
of the teachers involved rather 
than against them as Williams 
had apparently supposed he 

Mr. Johnson then raised the 
question, as he continued to do 
for the remainder of the evening, 
"where did you get the names? 
They were given to me in confi- 

It was revealed that the 
names were given to college 
president Dr. Harold C. Manor 
by county school superintend- 
ent, Howell L. Watkins. They 
were in documents that were 
distributed to the accused staff 

Mr. Watkins soon notified the 
president that these documents 
were confidential and they were 
retrieved, however, not before 
they had been seen by several 

It was upon this incident that 
Mr. Johnson based his sole dis- 
senting vote, he remarked. 

The vote concluded an emo- 
tional evening, which at the be- 
ginning, seemingly was to be 
quite uneventful. The accusers 
of the five faculty members had 
bowed out for various reasons 
and had not presented, in writ- 
(Continued on Page 3) 


This is America - the land in which you are considered inno- 
cent until proven guilty - yet apparently our instructors were 
considered guilty until proven otherwise in the recent ' subversion 

investigation. , 

They were called upon to defend personal integrity, honesty, 
patriotism and career while their accusers were conveniently un- 
available" to press charges. After forcefully defending their 
positions, they were denied a unanimous vote of confidence be- 
cause one Board member, Robert Johnson, felt that some of the 
material, namely a deposition from David Williams, one of the 
accusers, released to the school should not have been. 

Our faculty did not request this material, it was given to 
them, so why let the cloud of suspicion hang over them with 
one dissenting vote? 
We are proud of our faculty members and we feel they are 
among the finest instructors to be found. 

We feel, we can agree that the charges brought against 
them were completely unfounded and were based upon a blind 
prejudicial hatred so often evidenced by people who can t or won t 
look out of their tiny little world at the events which happen 
around them. 

The lone dissenter perhaps classified himself as one of 
these narrow people in the minds of many when he cast the 
lone "no" vote. Perhans he feels he had a justifiable reason for 
doing so but, is it so justifiable that it should cause even a 
small cloud to remain over these fine instructors? 
This dissenter could have at least given his reason for voting 
no, but he did not. He continued to speak cryptically on the sub- 
ject and refused to answer direct questions put to him by those 

If our school, the oldest junior college in the state, is damaged 
by these charges in any way it will possibly be the school boards 
fault for letting the investigation drag on unnecessarily and of the 
lone dissenter who refused to completely lift the cloud which has 
hung over the school for a month.

A Message from SGA President 
Holmes on Election Campaigning 

Dear Students, 

This morning there will be a 
special assembly in the auditori- 
um between 10 and 11 o'clock. The 
purpose of this assembly is to 
allow the candidates running for 
offices of S.G.A. and the sopho- 
more class to present their plat- 
forms and qualifications before 
the student body. 

The reason why the present Ex- 
ecutive Council changed the 
meeting place from the Student 
Lounge to the auditorium is that 
we felt that the auditorium is 
better suited for presenting the 
speeches. In the lounge, it seems 
that only a very small minority, 
those sitting directly in front of 
the speakers, were able to hear 
the speeches. In the auditorium, 
a greater number of students 
will be able to hear the platforms 
and qualifications of the individ- 
ual candidates, and therefore be 

The next issue of the 
BEACHCOMBER will appear, 
Sunday, May 5 as a special 
Open House edition. Copies 
will be available to any stu- 
dent at that time and will be 
on the stands, Monday, May 6. 

better prepared when they go to 
the polls this Friday to cast their 

I strongly urge all students to 
attend this assembly. If the stu- 
dent government association is 
to remain a democratically func- 
tioning body you students must 
exercise your individual rights 
and take an active part in stu- 
dent government proceedings.

This Week Named 
As "Library Week" 

National Library Week, April 
•21 to 27 will be observed as usual 
by the PBJC library, if the gifts 
planned by Librarian Ruth Dooley 
arrive in time. 

In honor of the occasion, how- 
ever, several hundred new books 
will be released. 

The new books acquired be- 
cause of requests by students 
and teachers include mostly popu- 
lar works of fiction and important 
non-fiction which are in the li- 
brary for the first time, also dup- 
licate copies of the most de- 
manded books in the library. 

The commemorative week, or- 
iginally planned to stimulate in- 
terest in reading, this year should 
include stimulation of interest in 
aiding the library. 

Donations of acceptable books 
will be appreciated during Li- 
brary Week, according to Mrs. 
Dooley, though students can keep 
anv lurid books.

The Chancer 0( £uptitial 

A fifty-fifty chance of survival! 

That's what the candidates we elect on Friday will have 
if they are like those who were elected to serve us this year. 

Last spring we went to the polls and elected eight people 
to office. Only four of them have managed to serve out their 
terms of office. One did not even start her term of office! 

In October the Freshmen went to the polls and elected 
four officers. Two of their elected officials are still in office. 
One post has changed hands three times since October. 

In an overall picture the SGA Executive Council has 
twelve members . . . only six of their original number remain. 

This is by far the highest mortality rate that our Student 
Government Association has had. The reasons behind this 
arc numerous. The results are indeed tragic to our student 
governing body. 

One extremely plausible cause for this high rate of turn- 
over in SGA officers is that elections are won more on per- 
sonality than on merits of the candidates competing. If a 
candidate has a nice speaking manner he is more likely to 
garner the winning number of votes than his opposition who, 
while competent in public speaking and very qualified to 
govern the student body, does not shine quite so brilliantly 
in the campaign. 

This is why the paper called for the candidates to present 
themselves before any and all interested students and submit 
to their questioning. 

The second origin of problems is the very low rate of 
voter turn-out. An estimated 49 percent of the eligible voters 
turned out in last year's SGA elections and only 28 percent 
turned out for this year's freshmen class elections. 

On this point we can and must take action. Many prob- 
lems have been seen to arise because of this small turnout. 
They are fresh in the memories of all. Only you can correct 
the apathetic situation. 

No amount of editorializing by the paper, no amount 
of talking by students can solve the problems — only actions 
can provide the answers to the problem faced by the Student 

That action is the casting of your vote. 

It is not too hard to cast your vote! Most of you are in 
the Lounge at some time or other ... it takes only a few 
minutes to cast your ballot. In this way you will have a 
voice in your government. 

If you take the right action next Friday, perhaps the 
mortality rate of student government officers next year will 
be 0. 

A Political Party - Cure For Apathy? 

A cure for voter apathy may now be on campus. The advent of 
our first political parly may be just the answer candidates have long 
searched for. 

Having proven their success on other campuses, this adventure 
in political parties will be an "experience". 

If nothing else is learned, we will understand the runnings of a 
national party just a little better from observing this campus or- 

Will it raise interest? Will it get more voters out? We can only 
hope so. When the election results are counted Friday, we'll know.

give their qualifications and platforms for seeking that office. 


SGA presidential candidate 


I was born in Boston, Mass., 
and lived for the most part in 
the Greater Boston area. My 
father's position as a telephone 
company executive in that area 
forced my family to move quite 
a few times in my early life but 
by the time I reached five we 
were settled in Medford, Mass. 
There I went through grade 
school and started junior high. 
Another move situated us in Mil- 
ton, Mass. where the family re- 
mained until we came to Florida 
in 1960. In Milton I finished jun- 
ior high and then entered Milton 
High School. Here I was elected 
as a Student Council representa- 
tive in both my sophomoi-e and 
junior years. I also participated 
in indoor and outdoor track as a 
hurdler, became a member of the 
gymnastics team and served as 
co-captain of the soccer team. 
Toward the end of my junior 
year, my family moved to Delray 
Beach, Florida where I attended 
Seacrest High School. Here I 
was also a member of the track 
team and graduated in the top 
ten percent of my class. 

In the fall of 1961 I enrolled at 
Palm Beach Junior College as 
a social science major. Two 
semesters later I decided to 
change my major to engineering 
in which I am presently enrolled. 
I am a member of Tri Kappa 
Lambda, in which I have served 
as secretary, member of the 
board of directors and presently 
am serving as vice president. I 
am a member of the Chess Club 
and a former ISCC representa- 
tive. I have also taken part in 
Mr. Crane's "College Showcase" 
and have been a member of the 
infamous 4 F's (enough said on

I was born and raised in the 
small town of Neenale, Wiscon- 
sin; my sister and I being the 
only children. I attended Neenale 
High School, where I lettered in 
football, basketball and track. 

In addition to these activities, 
I was also President of Choir and 
Student Government. 

I spent many happy and also 
many unhappy months in the U.S. 
Marine Corps. Fourteen of these 
months were spent overseas, 
where I was a telegraph operator. 

Upon fullfilment of my military 
obligation, I worked in the office 
of American Can Company. My 
job was that of a traffic clerk. 

Before coming to Florida, I 
worked as a promotional repre-

Company which took me into the 
offices of many influential peo-

Familiar Voice Asks For Ride; 
And JC Students Meet JFK 

April 24 

Feature Editor 

"Any chance of getting a ride?" 
called a familiar voice with its 
Massachusetts accent. The voice 
belonged to President John F. 
Kennedy. He was calling to oc- 
cupants of the nearby catamaran, 
"Patlycat", California multi- 
hulled champion. 

Three of the six occupants of 
the catamaran were students 
from Palm Beach Junior Col- 
lege. Two were the Misses Chris 
Greer, 19, and Rita Tedder, 20. 
According to Charles Graves, 
President Kennedy had ob- 
served the speedy vessel while 
yachting on Lake Worth the 
day before. The following day, 
Easter Sunday, the President, 
being a lifelong sailing enthusi- 
ast himself, while observing 
the sloop skim across the lake, 
called out asking for a ride and 
waved them over. 
The awed occupants of the 
twin-hulled, 27-foot sloop Patty- 
cat, pulled their vessel alongside 
the President's 92-foot yacht, 
Honey Fitz. Chris, Rita, and 
Tony were invited aboard the 
Honey Fitz to make room for 
President Kennedy and his guest, 
Navy Under Secretary Paul 
(Red) Fay, on the catamaran. 

With sails full and Kennedy at 
the tiller, the craft zoomed away 
from the Honey Fitz at a speed 
of about 20 knots and did sev- 
eral turns on the Intra-coastal 
Waterway. Fay also took a turn 
at the tiller. In all, it was about 
a twenty minute ride. 

What did they talk about? 
"Well," said Charles, "the first 
Kennedy did was introduce 
himself. He assumed that he 
was not so famous that wc would 
know him. 'I'm President Ken- 
nedy.' he said. And then he 
shook hands with each of us 
as we introduced ourselves." 
"He appeared very interested 
in PBJC and what we are doing

"The most humorous thing 
which occured was the President's 
attempt to light a cigar in a 
strong wind and heavy salt spray 
which soon made the cigar soggy.

cigar lit.' He agreed and threw 
it away.

An almost filled auditorium 
greeted the School Board. A ma-

because of the lack of unanimous

Tedder and Chris Greer, Mrs. 
Kennedy introduced herself in 
the same manner as did her 
husband, with the real breathy, 
Bostonian voice. She then in-

The girls were served refresh- 
ments, and carried on a conver- 
sation with Mr. Smith during the 
remainder of the cruise while 
Mrs. Kennedy and Mrs. Smith 
continued an intimate conversa-

After leaving the catamaran, 
Kennedy stood on the docks, 
waiting to greet the three girls 
he had displaced aboard the 
craft. He shook hands and 
chatted with them about PBJC.

Thi Dels Hold 
Annual Weekend 

The sisters of Thi Del had a 
time to remember on their 
"weekend" April 5 through 7. 

Beginning with a beach party 
Friday afternoon for members 
and their dates the weekend 
really got under way when the 
girls checked into a Ft. Lauder- 
dale luxury hotel and spent the 
remaining days basking in the 
sun and swimming in the hotel's 

Also included in the two days 
in Lauderdale was a sight seeing 
cruise and a big party held Sat- 
urday night. 

TKL Forms 
Indian River 
Beta Chapter 

Tri Kappa Lambda announced 
to the Beachcomber that their 
organization of men has gone 
statewide, having affiliated with 
Indian River Junior College, in 
Ft. Pierce, where a Beta chap- 
ter has been established. 

Formulation of the chapter at 
IRJC is a result of close co-op- 
eration and careful planning be- 
tween the two organizations. 
Further plans are being discussed 
on obtaining other chapters else- 
where in the state of Florida. 

Much of the work was done 
by Vice-President Bob Scott 
and President Jim Wacksman, 
Scott's brother, Pete Scott, is 
the founder of the organiza- 
tion in 1961. 

"We are out to achieve the big- 
gest and greatest brotherhood in 
the state for junior colleges," 
commented Wacksman. 

Presently, the local TKL'ers 
has a membership of 36, not in- 
cluding the pledge class of six 
for the semester, and Indian 
River having a charter member- 
ship of 14.

nedy seemed sincerely interested 
in college students and their ac- 

What were they wearing? The 
boys couldn't say for sure, but 
the girls of course, noticed. "Mrs. 
Kennedy was wearing a bright 
multi-colored, striped, Lyly shift, 
sandals, and a chartreuse head 
scarf. Mr. Kennedy was wear- 
ing pink slacks, a black ban-Ion 
polo shirt, a navy blue wind- 
breaker, and no shoes." (He took 
them off to go sailing.) 

What impressed them the 
most? "All the excitement 
created by the news reporters 
and broadcasters after the event 
was over." 

And the final question asked 
. . . could they tell ... did they 
notice? "No. That night's an- 
nouncement of the Kennedy's 
third expected child was a real 
surprise to us all."

SGA President-Elect 

— Padgent Pictures 


Sophomore Class President-Elect 

United Party Sweeps; 
Ammerman Heads SGA 
Prevost Soph Prexy 


The United Party swept the 
recent Student Government-Soph- 
omore Class elections and placed 
all of its slate of candidates in 

Bruce Ammerman, party stand- 
ard carrier for SGA president, 
emerged victorious over his op- 
position, Bob Scott, by a vote of 
408 to 181. 

James Prevost, party candidate 
for Sophomore Class president, 
triumphed over William Knapp 
for that office. Prevost garnered 
326 out of a possible 388 votes. 

In the other contest, in which 
a party candidate was opposed, 
that of sophomore class vice- 
president, party candidate Bob 
Slepen beat his opposition, Paul 
Parpard, by a vote of 228 to 147. 

Other party candidates were 
unopposed in the election. Jo- 
Anne Lowery was named SGA 
secretary and Mary Lynn Harris 
was named sophomore class 

In the race for SGA vice-pres- 
ident Ronald Simpson defeated 
Victoria Gathman for the office. 
The vote was 339 to 218. 

A run-off election for the office 
of SGA treasurer was scheduled, 
as of press time, for Friday, 
May 4. In the regular election 
Kerry Bogard received 152 votes, 

Joan Clark, 167; and Pam Dick- 
ey, 244. 

Jean Velleca was named soph- 
omore class secretary. She was 
unopposed for the office. 

Party chairman, Bob Lee, com- 
mented regarding how pleased 
the members were on the clean 
sweep they had made at the polls. 
He also said he hoped the United 
Party would continue next year 
and that, if possible, a two-party 
system would develop. 

Although percentages were not 
available at press time, indica- 
tions were prevalent that this 
year surpassed the past in nu- 
merical turnout. A total of 590 
freshmen and sophomores voted 
for the SGA officers. Freshmen 
voting for next year's sophomore 
officers numbered 388. 

The new Student Government 
Constitution could not be com- 
pletely prepared in time to go 
before the students on this ballot. 

Election day climaxed a hectic 
week of campaigning for all con- 
cerned. The last day of cam- 
paigning saw a concerted effort 
put forth on the part of the 
United Party and by various in- 
dividual candidates. 

Observers at the polls re- 
marked upon hearing the results 
of the election on the effective- 
ness of a political party in aiding 

"Curtain Calls" Featured

'Crichton' Now 
In Rehearsal 

Staff Writer 

The lights in the college audi- 
torium are again burning late 
into the night. The College Play- 
ers are at it again. Rehearsals 
for the final production of the 
year, "The Admirable Crichton," 
are in full swing. 

This delightful romantic com- 
edy, by J. M. Barrie, is consid- 
ered by many to be one of the 
finest examples of social satire 
in the whimsical nature of which 
he was a master. The play 
opens in the home of an aristo- 
cratic English family who are 
preparing for a distant voyage. 

The trip, however, is cut short 
when they are shipwrecked on a 
tropical island. While on this 
island the whole family reverts 
to the state of nature. There they 
are willing slaves of their former 
butler, but on return to civiliza- 
tion the positions are shifted. A 
most interesting situation.

W Glet Sat Ike Shutihf 

"All over but the shouting" was exactly what it felt 
like the afternoon election results were announced. The 
winners and losers were announced, and for a while they 
each, undoubtedly felt somewhat numb. 

But the numbness soon wears off and both winners 
and losers have a place in campus politics. 

The winners have a terrific job ahead of them. Those 
elected on a platform must strive to live up to that platform 
or else lose the faith and confidence of the student elector- 
ate who voted for them. 

They must also live down the recent fiasco the Student 
Government has been through. This new Executive Coun- 
cil must again build up the prestige of that organization. 
The Council members must walk carefully and circum- 
spectly in all matters. 

Student Government was held up before the student 
body before and it can be held up in like manner again. 

The new Council members said they would like to 
work closer with the students who elected them. This 
was a prevalent statement in campaign speeches. Let's 
hope that it is lived up to in their year of administration. 

These are but a few of the things lying ahead of the 
new officers. They have all the opportunities to make 
their administration a memorable one for progress and 
prestige. They can erase the things done wrong by this 
year's Council. 

The losers have their place, too. They should not 
sink into oblivion just because they lost an election. They 
should become the "opposition" — the force that keeps those 
in office in line and makes sure that the proper job is done. 

This is the function of the losers in practically all elec- 
tions and this should be their function on this campus. 

A political party put five out of eight of the winners 
in office. This party was conceived in the minds of sev- 
eral people at different times and finally came out during 
this election. 

The worth of such a party has been proved. The 
party will continue next year and hopes to .be active in 
next fall's Freshman Class elections. 

An opposition party would be ideal now in this situ- 
ation. It is our hope that, now the value of a party has 
been proven, another party will be formed. 

Elections are once again over. Now campaign speeches 
and platforms must be lived up to and it is the duty of 
those who elected them to see that promises are kept.

"4 Welcome tP Open Houte 

We would like to welcome each and every visitor to this, now 
annual, Open House. Next year, we, as a college will be celebrating 
our thirtieth anniversary. We are proud of that fact and you should 
be, too, for we are the oldest public junior college in the state of 

Today will be the first time that our new buildings will be open 
to the public. It is hoped, that many will take the opportunity to visit 
them and become acquainted with the school. 

The following six pages of the paper are designed to stimulate 
interest of students to attend this school. Depicted are scenes from 
the academic, social and athletic sides of life on campus. 

It is hoped that through these pages and other information avail- 
able at Open House that many students will decide to come here to 
college for it offers both a heritage and a future that no other state 
junior college has. 

Within the next few years the role of this school will become more 
important as FAU grows. This school will act as a "feeder" to the 
university and its curriculum will grow in a fitting manner. 

The future of PBJC could be the future of those attending Open 
House today. It is easy to make it so. 

The first aerial view of the school including the newly constructed buildings is a sight 
to behold. Though it might look small from the ground, the full magnitude of our 114-acre 
campus can be seen from the air.

Letters To Students 

Why Join Political Parties? 

Dear Students, 

Members of the United Party 
hope that the explicit evidence 
of the strength of a political 
party on campus in the past elec- 
tion will stimulate interest for a 
two-party system next year. 

If the United Party remains a 
balanced party, with equal inde- 
pendent and social club represen- 
tation, members, probably, will 
be able to continue to organize 
and compromise the viewpoints 
and find areas of agreement of a 
large number of students within 
its ranks. Constituents crystal- 
lize opinion into two points of 
view so that after proper consid- 
eration and debate a majority 
decision can be made effective. 
Members will then select quali- 

fied 'candidates and limit political 
aspirants to a reasonable number 
for consideration by the students. 
This will eliminate unqualified so- 
cial club members and indepen- 
dents from running on the party 
ticket just for prestige for their 
organization or themselves. The 
United Party thus determines a 
platform, which issues will be 
presented, and which candidates 
will be offered for your selection; 
therefore, raising the political 
standard on campus. 

It follows that the student who 
keeps out of politics, who sanc- 
timoniously takes pride in his 
"independence" is in fact forfeit- 
ing a sizable amount of his inde- 
pendence by being deprived of 

the privilege of helping determii 
candidates and issues in par 
caucuses. His final choices a 
limited by a process in which 1 
has no part. The most indepe 
dent individual is the person

part in the entire political pr 
cess which includes full partii 
pation in the party of his chok 
Parties are far from perfect 
they are only as good as the pe 
pie who make them up, and 
the extent that you fail to par 
cipate, you are responsible f 
their imperfections.

Orientation is one of the first experiences an incoming student goes through. It 
is at this program that prominent college figures, both faculty members and stu- 
dents, are introduced to the new people on campus. 

Although it may look confusing, and sometimes is, registration is 
a necessary evil to the student. It is at this place that classes, hours 
and instructors are decided upon for the rest of the semester. Choices 
had best be right for changes in schedules are not easily obtained. 

Palm Beach Junior College welcomes hundreds of new 
students to its campus each year — and that number is con- 
stantly growing. Future plans for expansion have grown 
immensely since the proposed Florida Atlantic University 
has apparently become reality. 

First acquaintance with the actual physical facilities 
of the college occurs as they come to take the battery of place- 
ment tests given to all prospective students. A day is spent 
taking these exams which are to determine the level of work 
the new student should attempt in his first semester. 

Orientation is next on the program of the entering 
student. It is here that the student gets acquainted with 
various faculty members and comes to know of the activ- 
ities available to him as a member of the student body. 

Registration is something which all students entering 
and returning must endure. It is soon over, though. A 
trip to the college book store comes next and then the new 
student is ready to begin class. 

This past year the Student Government instituted a 
"welcome week" in which all incoming students were given 
name tags to wear so that they could become acquainted. 
Plans are being made to continue this practice next year 
because of the favorable comments received after this year's 

Incoming students soon become acquainted with three 
points of interest on the campus: the library, the lounge 
and the Wishing Well. 

The library, the incoming students soon find, is com- 
pletely air-conditioned and hence is well frequented in the 
early hot days of the new student's first semester. Well- 
known for its "quietness" an atmosphere conducive to 
study is found here. 

The lounge is a place for socializing. Populated with 
almost every student on campus during the 10 o'clock 
break, this is the place "where old friends greet and where 
new friends meet." Conversations of every type imagin- 
able can be found in this atmosphere. 

The Wishing Well is found in the corner of the Ad- 
ministration Building and is well frequented — especially at 
exam time. The pennies contributed are used to support a 
child adopted by the college. The moral support the giving 
of a few pennies grants during a test is remarkable. 

Students attending this school and, becoming a PART 
of it, have nothing but the highest thoughts for its staff, 
for its curriculum and for its extra-curricular program. Once 
you become a student at this school, you obtain much more 
than an education for a reasonable price; more than 64 
credits which will transfer to a senior institution; you 
become a part of a rapidly-growing and highly-rated edu- 
cational institution — -a part of the oldest junior college in 
the state of Florida.

The Lounge — favorite congregating place at the 10 o'clock break usually is filled 
with students looking for a friend or friends, who, when they don't find who they 
are looking for, avail themselves of the opportunity to make new ones. The Lounge 
is especially filled when there are elections, for this is the campaigning meeca. 

"Welcome Week" was instituted by the Student Government As- 
sociation this year, in order to acquaint incoming students with each 
other. Students were presented plastic covered name tags at the door 
leaving registration and were formally greeted by SGA representatives. 
Reports have it that this campaign was one of the most successful 
the SGA has engaged in this year. 

The Wishing Well is a place of quiet and beautiful scenery on 
campus The first piece of honest-to-goodness tradition here, it is 
often visited by students just a "bit" apprehensive about upcoming

Courses Molded for Today... 

Hotel-Motel Management 

A new hotel-motel management program, first of its kind in 
PBJC and in the state will begin next semester. It will outline the 
curriculum for the new program which will make use of a number 
of related courses already being offered. 

The program will offer students a degree of associate in hotel- 
motel management or hotel-motel food service management upon 
completion of the two-year course. 

This new program will help the student in entering any field of 
the hotel, motel or restaurant positions ranging from hotel manager 
to supervisor in a kitchen. 

Soviet Studies 

The Soviet Studies course being offered by the Social Science De- 
partment and being taught by George Hofmann provides for the com- 
prehensive study of the development of the modern Soviet State. 

The course includes familiarization with the Russian culture, 
language, history, government and geography. One aspect of the 
course deals with the entire Communist movement and through 
examination and interpretation the students are taught the nature 
and menace of Communism. 

Business Terminal Program 

The Business Administration Department of Palm Beach Junior 
has as its major objective a varied business program with high 
standards of quality. It functions to serve the needs of two types of 
students: The student who plans to continue his work toward a four 
year degree and the terminal student who plans to enter business 
after one or two years of college work. 

Art Terminal Program 

The Art Department offers a well-balanced curriculum in art for 
advertising and industry and other major art fields. Included are: 
advertising, illustration, advertising production, architecture, greet- 
ing card design, interior design, newspaper and magazine advertis- 
ing, merchandising, printing, photography, dress design, art teach- 
ing and others. 

The emphasis in the major art courses is geared to meet the 
needs in the various fields of our technical world today. All the major 
courses in the department are presented with professional standards 
as a goal. 

Dental Hygiene 

A completely air-conditioned laboratory-classroom is the home of 
the dental hygiene program on campus. This program is one of the 
newest on campus and provides a graduate with an AS degree in 
Dental Hygiene upon graduation. 

The curriculum closely parallels the nursing course. 

Excellence in Teaching Program 

The Nursing Department trains students in the age old art of nursing. After 
successfully completing two years and one summer of study, the student nurse may 
become an RN by passing the state nursing exam. Training on the college level, 
takes the student into area hospitals in order to obtain clinical experience. 

A drafting and engineering student obtains a vivid explanation 
on how to solve the problem facing him from Mr. Donald Witmer, 
chairman of the Engineering Technology Department. These courses 
enable the student to go on in education or to obtain profitable em- 
ployment after two years of school. 

"Students prepare for many various fields by studying in the 
chemistry labs Careers in medicine, engineering, science and teach- 
ing are just a few of the openings for a person in chemistry. Lectures 
and labs provide the student with a wealth of information applicable 
in many ways. 

The Art Department offers both terminal and 
university parallel programs to those artistically in- 
clined students. Courses vary a good deal in con- 
tent to give the potential artist a good background 
in his field. Employment is available in the com- 
munity for various specialities. Opportunities are 
abundant on the campus for the artist to practice 
his talent.

The Music Department offers individual lessons to students inter- 
ested in the profession of music and to those interested in music as 
a hobby. The College Concert Band performs regularly for various 
school and community functions.

cal system. -SamR.QuinceyPho.o 

What seems like a maze to the average layman is as plain as day to the elec- 
tronic engineering students on campus. The complex workings of electric apparatus 
are studied by them. When the course is finished, they are ready to complete their 
education to obtain a degree in electric engineering or they can become electrical 
technicians, employable immediately. 

The Dental Hygiene program provides the most modern equip- 
ment and instruction to girls interested in becoming dental hygienists 
after completing two years of college work. This program is housed 
in a separate building and will soon be offering dental care to col- . 
lege students at a nominal fee. Girls graduating from this program 
will be able to find jobs in this fast growing field of endeavor. 

The nursing program at Palm Beach Junior College is designed 
to prepare the student to become a registered nurse, who, upon 
completion of the course of study, is capable of effectively caring for 
patients of all ages and all degrees of illness. 

Within two academic years and one summer, the curriculum, 
which includes general education courses applicable to nursing and 
which contribute to the well-rounded development of the individual, 
may be completed. 

Upon graduation the student receives an Associate in Applied 
Science Degree and is eligible to write the licensing examination 
given by the Florida State Board of Nursing. The Registered Nurse 
license is received by the student upon successful completion of this 

Drafting and Design Technology 
This two year program includes courses in general education and 
technically related laboratory classes. Classroom instruction provides 
a firm background in fundamental drafting practices and presents 
drafting techniques in such areas as are the responsibility of the 

The classes in Mechanical Drawing provide background for spe- 
cialization. A choice of Civil, Architectural or Machine Drafting, as 
advanced study, provides specialized training. Mathematics and 
general physics courses aid students in drafting studies and the re- 
maining general studies establish a well-rounded education. Students 
completing the Drafting and Design Technology curriculum will be 
eligible for an Associate of Science Degree. 
Law Enforcement 
Among the specialized business, technical and professional courses 
offered by the college is the Law Enforcement program. This course 
of study provides the necessary preparation for beginning employ- 
ment as a peace officer. 

This course is being offered at PBJC through the cooperation of 
the West Palm Beach Police Department and is being taught by 
Police Chief William Barnes and some of his associates. 

It is offered to both men and women and, although a person 
has to be 21 to become eligible for a position as a regular patrol- 
man, the students are to be reminded that the WPB Police 
Department will take graduates of the course as cadets until such 
a time that they become eligible to take the various specialized 
mental and physical tests. 

In addition to the regular instruction, several programs at PBJC 
will offer students the extra benefit of on the job training. 

The Medical Assistant program, besides giving the students a 
saleable skill, affords him the opportunity to gain experience. 

A period of internship acquaints participants in the program with 
actual working conditions. 

On the job training is being expanded to include the new course 
in Hotel-Motel Management. 

Noted speakers are often found 
on the junior college campus 
talking to students interested in 
their fields. These speakers re- 
late first hand experience to the 
students inquiring and often can 
give practical advice regarding 
the remaining years of the stu- 
dent's college career.

One of the first activities to hit the campus at the beginning of the year is social 
club pledging, which involves all sorts of antics for the pledges striving for the goal 
of full club membership. _ Ku | p Pholo 


Circle K 

Circle K is a service club among approximately forty other or- 
ganizations on campus. Members believe that service is the giving 
of oneself for the good of others. With such a worthy cause as 
service, this club is held in high esteem by those who come in con- 
tact with if. 

Specifically Circle K, a Kiwanis sponsored group, serves the 
student body, the administration, and the community. 

Students benefit from essay contests, scholarship programs, and 

work parties that tend voting machines, usher, and sell stationery. 

Members help the administration by acting as guides for Open 

House, helping in campus beautification, and making themselves 

available any time they are called upon. 

Service to the community includes such welfare projects as flea] 
ing with juvenile delinquents, crippled children and working foi 
political candidates in a local election. 

With such a worthy direction that Circle K has embarked on 
it is small wonder that it is one of the fastest growing organization! 
on the college campuses in America. 

College Dances 

Campus dances range in variety from the ridiculous to the sub 

Two costume dances are contrasted by at least four elegant foi 
mal balls which are sponsored by PBJC social clubs. 

For the costumed Sadie Hawkins Day Dance girls invite boy 
and have a turn-about date. The Artists' and Models' Ball is hel 
in the spring and this year's theme was "The Wonderful World < 
Modern Advertising" with decorations on that thesis. 

The formals include: the "Harvest Moon Ball," sponsored by tt 
Thi Del Women's Social Club; "Christmas Fantasy," given by 1 
Omega Women's Social Club; "Arch Ball," given by Philo Women 
Social Club and the "Sweetheart Ball" given by Phi Da Di Men 
Social Club. 

Players Productions 

The PBJC Players meet dramatic challenges with eagerness ai 
present three plays each year which demonstrate their versatilit 

Right now they are hard at work on their upcoming productio 
the four-act British fantasy, "The Admirable Crichton" which w 
be presented at the auditorium May 16-18. 

Already this year the players have faced and successfully pr 
duced the challenging "J. B.", Archibald MacLeish's Pulitzer Pri 

The first Drama department production this year was "Lt 
Homeward Angel," a comedy-drama of the life of Thomas Wol 

Blood Drive 

The drive now held regularly as a Thi Del service was start 
when members of men service clubs gave blood for Dean Pi 
Glynn's wife. 

As a surplus had been donated Dean. Glynn decided to make I 
blood available to students and faculty and members of their famil 
when it was needed. 

Now coordinated by the Palm Beach Blood Bank, Inc., it has 
sued 486 pints in the eight years since the bank was started. 

The blood can be obtained by contacting Dean Glynn and giv 
him the name of the patient, hospital and attending doctor. 

Both sexes on campus have the chance to vie for the titles of 
Daisy Mae and Li'l Abner as one of the first all school dances, the 
Sadie Hawkins Day Dance, is held. Native Dogpatchers come out 
of the hills in full regalia to attend this social event. _ Ku|p pho)o 

The Thi Del Blood Drive is only one of the service projects that 
various campus organizations engage in during the year. This drive 
is held in conjunction with the Palm Beach County CTA and because 
of its good results, allows PBJC faculty, students and their respec- 
tive families to obtain all the blood they need in an emergency. 

Drama is a key-note three times a year as the College Players 
perform prize winning plays before packed audiences. Long hard 
hours are put in on these productions which are presented to the 
community from the college stage. 

With A Purple 

College Showcase 

This year was the first year that our school has appeared on TV 
with regularity. College Showcase has marked the beginning of our 
advent into the realm of television. 

Seen every month from 1:30 to 2:00 p.m. on a Sunday afternoon 
over Channel 5, the series is hosted by speech instructor and newly 
named TV co-ordinator, Josh Crane. 

Showcase has featured college life from the fine arts department 
to the science department; from the literary world to the world of 
drama; from the nursing program to a musical interlude. Plans for 
next year include an expansion of its coverage. 

Social Club Pledging 

At the beginning of each semester a ritual known as social club 
pledging is begun. Rush week starts off the pledge season and stu- 
dents are invited to attend rush parties given by the Inter-social Club 
Council and by the three women's and four men's social clubs. 

After rushing, bids are given out and pledges are taken into the 
social club. Then starts the eight to nine-week pledge period. During 
this period the pledges "serve" the members in whatever way they 
are requested to; following the successful completion of this period 
and if the pledge has made his grades, he is initiated into full mem- 
bership of the social organization. 


There are three major publications on campus and students may 
work on any or all of them if they so desire. 

Positions are open on the Galleon, the college annual. This year 
the yearbook is a new size — 9 x 12. 

The BEACHCOMBER is the school newspaper and is the second 
junior college weekly paper in the entire state. A variety of positions 
on it are available. 

Media is the literary magazine on campus and it too has a place 
for students to work. It is published once every spring. 

Honor Societies 

There are three honorary groups on campus and each is active 
in its special way. 

Phi Theta Kappa is the overall scholastic honor fraternity which 
students may join if they have a 3.0 plus average. Kappa engages 
in various activities. This year it hosted the national convention in 
Miami Beach. 

Phi Rho Pi is the speech honorary which engages in speech and 
drama activities on campus. It annually sponsors a high school 
speech tournament, 

Sigma Epsilon Mu is the honorary for science, math and engin- 
eering majors.

College Players dramatizations of real life events are just one of the features 
shown on College Showcase. College Showcase is the monthly TV show presented 
by the school over Channel 5. It deals with many aspects and functions of life on 
campus and in the community.

Formal dances, sponsored by the social clubs, but open to all 
college students, are held seven times a year. All students are in- 
vited to attend these formals which are hosted by various area hotels. 

Aspiring politicians and those just interested in the political life 
of the community are invited to attend Political Union meetings. 
These dinner sessions are usually held once a month and feature as 
speakers, prominent leaders in area politics. Question and answer 
sessions are held following the dinner and students are invited to 
question the guests.

Circle K And Miss -Fits Take 
Annual Intramural Swim Meet 

You're Out 

Badminton is just one of the many intramural 
sports available for student participation. Open to 
women, singles and doubles; men, singles and 
doubles; and co-ed teams, this is a popular sport. 
sponsored by the I-R Board. 

Written by: 

Archery is considered both as a sport and as an academic subject 
on campus. Many students take the subject and become interested 
in the sport and hence participate in it when the season rolls around. 
This, again, is open to men's, women's and to co-ed teams in times 
designated by the Intramural and Recreation Board and the Physical 
Education Department. 

Two annual all-school picnics are sponsored by the I-R Board, one in each 
semester. At these affairs, friendly rivalries exist between freshmen and sopho- 
more classes. These rivalries usually exist until it is decided which class will get 
first place in line for dinner. 

Intramural basketball is another favorite of student athletes. Both men's ai 
women's leagues are formed for this sport which yields some high excitement beto: 
the season is over. 

The Physical Education Department at PBJC probabl] 
establishes a closer contact between student and faculty thai 
any other department on campus. The department offers ai 
entensive physical education program with classes rangin; 
from archery .to volleyball. 

But the PE department offers more than just the physica 
education classes. There is a well rounded Intramural Pre 
gram covering several individual activities as well as til 
regular team activities. These include tennis, golf, swimmtn; 
badminton, table tennis and archery. 

Team activities are football, soccer, volleyball, bnsketba 
and softball. 

An all-school wind-up picnic in May is co-sponsored b 
the PE Department and the I-R Board Intramural an 
Recreational Board. The I-R Board is composed of a sti 
dent representative for every fifty students. The Board, alor

is one course in which proficiency 
at games usually played for re- 
laxation is learned. Also covered 
in the course are: horseshoes, 
deck tennis, table tennis and 

The wind-up of the Women's 
Softball League is today, Sunday, 
May 5 with either a playoff game 
or winner vs all-stars (to be an-

Several of the members of 
the Home Economics depart- 
ment, under the direction of 
Mrs. Edith Hall, are making 
some of the lavish costumes of 
the early nineteen hundreds. 
Frank Leahy, director of the 
players, has devised a unique 
method of obtaining costumes for 
the island scene. He is going to 
have the members of the cast 
who appear on the island make 
their own costumes from mate- 
rials which would be found on a 
tropical island. 

The author, J. M. Barrie, had 
the distinction of having a new 
play produced on London stages 
almost every year from the 
late 1890's to the early 1920's, 
among which was the immortal 
classic "Peter Pan." "The Ad- 
mirable Crichton" is one of the 
best known of Barrie's fantas- 
tic modern plays. 
The production will be pre- 
sented on May 16, 17 and 13. The
